Couscous granola??! You have got to be kidding me, right??? I had to create a sugar free recipe for one of my dietetic internship rotations. It was based on a sugar free campaign that the company created. The recipe that I was originally going to make called for quinoa…another weird grain to place in a granola recipe. I didn’t have any quinoa and instead substituted it for couscous and was very pleased with the results.
- 1 cup couscous, uncooked
- 1 cup pumpkin seeds
- 1/4 cup chia seeds
- 1 t course salt
- 1/4 cup dried apricots
- 1/4 cup honey
- 2 T canola oil
- Combine couscous, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, salt, apricots, honey and canola oil in a medium sized bowl.
- Pour mixture onto sheet pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
- After the granola has cooled, place on your favorite yogurt or smoothie bowl.
