1/2 cup uncooked white quinoa

3/4 cup almonds, chopped  

1/3 cup rolled oats 

2 tablespoons coconut sugar 

2 tablespoons black chia seeds 

1/8 teaspoon sea salt 

2/3 cup pure maple syrup 

2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted  

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper, then set aside.
  2. Combine the quinoa, almonds, oats, coconut sugar, chia seeds, and sea salt in a medium mixing bowl and stir to combine. 
  3. Add the maple syrup, coconut oil, and vanilla extract. Stir until fully mixed. 
  4. Spread the mixture into an even layer on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 12 to 15 minutes, watching carefully to avoid burning. The brittle is ready when the color is evenly golden brown and the edges begin to darken, get bubbly, and spread farther out. 
  5. Let cool completely before breaking into bite-size pieces with your hands.
