Recipe

This hearty Cinnamon Quinoa Bowl with Berries is a healthy alternative to your morning oatmeal.

As much as I love oatmeal sometimes I just need a break from it. However I don't like to give up the hearty, fiber filled, staying power of oatmeal. It always keeps me full all morning, which is tough for me to find in a breakfast dish. These Cinnamon Quinoa Breakfast Bowls are the perfect solution if you are burning out on oatmeal like me. The quinoa is fluffy, hearty, and makes a surprisingly delicious breakfast dish. I like to add mashed bananas for sweetness and creaminess. You could also just slice it up and put it on top if you prefer. Then add any fruit you like and breakfast is ready.

Directions

  1. Add the quinoa, almond milk, banana, cinnamon, maple syrup, and vanilla extract to a sauce pan. Bring to a boil and cover. Turn heat down to low and simmer for fifteen minutes. Turn off heat and let rest for 5 minutes. Fluff with fork. (If you don't want the mushier texture the banana adds, leave it out and then just serve it sliced on top.)
  2. Top with blueberries or your favorite fruit, nuts, or yogurt. If you make this ahead of, add some almond milk before reheating. I like to use about 1/4 cup.
