Maple Pecan Granola (w/ Quinoa Crispy!)

I discovered quinoa crispy cereal! Woah I know...exciting right?! They are like rice crispy cereal, only made from quiona.  1 ingredient: organic quinoa!

I added a little extra salt to bring out the maple 
Salty + Sweet = Party in my mouth!

1 1/2 cups old fashion rolled oats
1/2 cup quinoa crisps
1 cup pecan pieces
1/4 cup nut oil
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 t fresj ground salt (you can use less.  I just like the salty/sweet combo!)

preheat 300
Line a sheet tray with parchment paper
combine, oats, pecans and salt
whisk oil and maple
pour over dry ingredients and mix well
spread oats evenly on baking tray
Bake 1 - 1.5 hours, stirring every 15 minutes
Granola should be light brown and getting crispy
it will get crispier and hard as it cools...

I can't have granola in my's like crack to me :) so I make it and give it to friends in cute little jars.  Makes a good little gift with local yogurt and maple.
Serve with yogurt and sprinkled granola!.
Or I also like to simmer almond milk and pour over granola
