Quinoa & Chia Seed Brittle

Quinoa and chia seed, in brittle.

Naturally sweetened. Nutrient-dense. Protein-packed. Perfection.


Though I think this makes for a holiday treat, I made this as a year-round breakfast and dessert bite. Share it with family and friends; they’ll fall in love and crave for more!

  • 1/2 cup uncooked red quinoa
  • 3/4 cups walnuts, chopped
  • 1/4 cup rolled oats
  • 5 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 2 tablespoon dried coconut flakes
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 3 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Add quinoa, walnuts, oats, chia seeds, coconut flakes, and salt to a mixing bowl. Stir to combine.
  3. In a small saucepan on medium-low heat, warm up the coconut oil and maple syrup for 2-3 minutes.
  4. Pour over the dry ingredients and stir to combine. Arrange on parchment-lined baking sheet and spread into a thin and even layer.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes, then turn the baking sheet around to ensure even browning. Bake 5-8 minutes more.
  6. Let cool completely before breaking into bite-size pieces with a sharp knife  or your fingers.
  7. Once cooled, store leftovers in a sealed container at room temperature for 1 week or in the freezer for up to 1 month. Enjoy!
