Are you sick of oatmeal, cereal, or toast for your morning breakfast? Do you get hungry by 9am, only a few hours after you ate breaky? Breakfast Quinoa can fix these problems for you.
I make a batch of breakfast quinoa at least once a week. It is so delicious and so easy to play around with (add any toppings you have in your fridge or cupboard). You can thank me later.
- 1/2 cup quinoa, uncooked
- 1/2 cup almond milk (or other milk)
- 3 tbsp maple syrup
- 2 tbsp raisins
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 2 tbsp walnuts, chopped
- 1/4 cup chopped fruit (peaches, apple, berries, etc.)
1) Cook quinoa according to package directions. Once cooked, place in container and refrigerate for at least one hour.
2) Mix quinoa with almond milk, maple syrup, raisins, cinnamon, walnuts, and fruit. Cover and return to fridge. It’s best to leave it over night but you can enjoy right away. Add more/less maple syrup and cinnamon if you wish.
**note – the quinoa should have the consistency of oatmeal (wet and a bit chunky). Add more milk (1tbsp at a time) until you reach your desired consistency.
