I’m on a breakfast bowl kick lately, usually I start my mornings with something savory but yesterday I was in the mood for something sweeter, so I made these instead. I cooked the quinoa in almond milk and cinnamon, then added some more warmed almond milk to my bowls when I was ready to eat. I topped mine with a touch of honey and hemp seeds but you can use pepitas, sunflower seeds or even nuts instead.
