Ingredients for servings

    Cinnamon Quinoa Breakfast Bowl

  • 1 cup uncooked quinoa

  • 1 cup water

  • 1 cup non-dairy milk

  • 0.5 teaspoon cinnamon

  • 0.5 teaspoon vanilla

  • 0.25 teaspoon sea salt

  • 2 tablespoon cacao nibs

  • 2 tablespoon maple syrup or to taste

  • 2 cup chopped fresh fruit bananas, pineapple, cantaloupe, blueberries, watermelon, honeydew or mango


  • Rinse and drain quinoa.

  • Place water, milk and quinoa in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, add cinnamon, vanilla and sea salt. Cover and cook for about 15 minutes, or until all liquid is absorbed. Watch the pot carefully because it has a tendency to boil over. Remove from heat and let pot sit, covered for 2-3 minutes.

  • Remove lid and fluff quinoa before portioning into two bowls. Top with cacao nibs, fresh fruit and a drizzle of maple syrup. You can also add additional milk if you want more moisture.
