Warm Quinoa Breakfast Cereal

DSC_0993 As the weather cools I am naturally easing off of breakfast smoothies and beginning to crave warmer foods in the morning.  This recipe is actually my daughter’s creation, one that the whole family loves.  It is a powerhouse of nutrition and perfectly filling without being difficult to digest.  I like to make a big pot, store in the fridge, and heat up individual servings as needed on busy school day mornings.

Warm Quinoa Breakfast Cereal:

-2 cups of cooked quinoa 

-1/4 cup each of chia, pumpkin, and hemp seeds, shredded coconut, and coconut sugar

-2 T maple syrup, plus more to taste

-1/3 cup of almond or coconut milk

– 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

-1-2 cups of blueberries (substitute for your favorite fruit.  Sliced bananas are a good choice!)

While your quinoa is cooking, mix all of the dry ingredients in a small bowl. Once the quinoa is done, remove it from the heat, and stir in first your dry, then wet ingredients. After you have mixed it well, add your blueberries (or fruit of choice) and you’re done! Enjoy ❤ ❤

    I made this for breakfast this morning and really enjoyed it. I didn’t add blueberries to the whole recipe, just to my bowl. That way I can add different fruit every day. I would cut back a little on the maple syrup and/or coconut sugar as it was a little sweet for my taste. Great recipe Megan!
