Recipe Ingredients for Quinoa, Apricot, and Nut Clusters

3/4 c. quinoa, white
1 1/2 c. oats, old fashioned rolled
1/2 c. sunflower seeds, raw, shelled
1/2 c. pistachios, raw, shelled, chopped
1 c. dried apricots
1/4 c. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 c. honey
2 tbsp. canola oil
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 eggs, plus 1 egg white, lightly beaten

Recipe Directions for Quinoa, Apricot, and Nut Clusters

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Rinse quinoa thoroughly in a fine sieve; drain. Bring 1 1/2 cups water to a boil in a small saucepan. Add quinoa; return to a boil. Stir quinoa; cover, and reduce heat. Simmer until most liquid is absorbed and quinoa is slightly undercooked, about 12 minutes; transfer to a rimmed baking sheet. Bake, fluffing with a fork occasionally, until pale golden, 30 to 35 minutes. Let cool in a large bowl.

  2. Spread oats on baking sheet; bake until lightly browned, about 15 minutes. Add oats to quinoa. Spread seeds on baking sheet; bake until lightly toasted, about 7 minutes. Add to quinoa mixture; let cool. Reduce oven temperature to 300 degrees.

  3. Toss nuts, apricots, sugar and salt with quinoa mixture. Beat honey, oil and vanilla into eggs; stir into quinoa mixture.

  4. Line a 12-by-17-inch baking sheet with parchment, lightly coat with cooking spray. Spoon 1/4 cup batter onto sheet for each cluster; space 3 inches apart. Flatten to 1/4 inch thick. Bake, rotating sheet halfway through, until crisp, about 25 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack. Store, loosely covered with foil, up to 2 days.
