Quinoa, in brittle.

I know. This is exciting stuff.

Remember my 7-Ingredient Quinoa Granola? Yep, that’s good stuff (and would make an excellent holiday gift!).

Well, while I was testing that recipe, I noticed a few of the edge pieces got especially caramelized and tasted like brittle! It was a little lightbulb moment. I never thought “healthy” brittle could be a thing, but guess what? It totally is.

This recipe is simple, requiring just 7 ingredients and about 30 minutes to prepare (plus a little extra for cooling).

It’s naturally sweetened with coconut sugar and maple syrup, calls for coconut oil in place of vegan butter, and is jam-packed with nutrient-dense ingredients like oats, chia seeds, and quinoa! That’s right, there’s protein in this dessert. Does it get any better than that?!

I think you guys are going to LOVE this brittle! It’s:

Crispy
Crunchy
Naturally sweet
Nutrient-dense
Nutty
Satisfying
& Addictive

Though I think this would be delicious year round, I made this brittle with the holidays in mind. Can you imagine your friends’ reactions when you bring quinoa brittle to their dinner party?

‘Yeah, that’s right, there’s chia seeds in your dessert. Deal with it!’

But seriously, they’ll fall in love and sneak bites when you’re not looking – guaranteed.
