    Tbsp Chia Seeds

  • 1/3

    cup Pecans, ground

  • 2/3

    C Brown Sugar (see note)

  • 1

    Tbsp Cinnamon?1 tsp Salt

  • 3/4

    C Dried Fruit (Golden Raisins & Dried Cherries)

  • 3

    C 2% Milk

  • 1

    tsp Vanilla

  • 1

    Apple, cored, peeled and chopped

Directions

1.Preheat the oven to 350° F and butter a 9x13 baking dish. 2.Soak the quinoa in water for at least 5 minutes and then thoroughly rinse. Combine the quinoa with 2 ¾ C of water and ½ tsp salt in a pot and bring the water to a boil. Once the water is boiling, cover and reduce the heat. Cook for another 10 minutes and then remove from the heat. The quinoa may not be fully cooked at this point, which is fine because it will be cooked again in the oven. If there is any excess water, strain it out and discard. Let the quinoa sit, fluffed and uncovered, to cool for a while. 3.Combine the nuts, dried fruit, remaining salt, cinnamon, chia seeds and flax seeds in a large bowl and set aside. 4.In a second bowl, whisk together the eggs, sugar, milk, brown sugar and vanilla. Add the liquid to the fruit and nut bowl and stir well. Stir in the cooled quinoa and pour the entire thing into the prepped baking dish. Lastly, sprinkle the top of the quinoa with the chopped apples. 5.Cover the dish and bake in the 350° F for 30 minutes. Remove the cover from the dish and continue to cook until the middle has set; approximately another 30 minutes. 6.Remove the dish to a rack to cool. If you’re in the mood for some immediate goodness, go ahead and scoop yourself a nice helping after the dish has cooled for a bit. Otherwise, chill it and then cut into squares, or wait to scoop some chilled quinoa into a bowl with some milk for breakfast. 7.Bon Appétit!
