You can make the quinoa ahead and keep it refrigerated (or frozen) for when you’re ready to eat for a quick breakfast on the go!

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.

  1. I’m addicted to this! I make a batch and put some in my oatmeal each morning. Delicious!

  2. This is a delicious quick & easy breakfast. I struggle with having time to make a healthy breakfast before work, so I doubled this recipe and put everything together the night before so all I had to do in the morning was add a splash of almond milk and pop a bowl in the microwave. Definitely recommend!

  3. I made quinoa in a bag the night before and didn’t realize you cook it with milk. How do I covert this? Should I just cook the milk part then when finished then add quinoa? 

  4. Love this

  5. I made this today for me and my granddaughter. So delicious!!! I used unsweetened pomegranate juice instead of milk. Granddaugter loved the color, and she had fun helping cut up different fruits to try.

  6. I’ve never been very good at cooking quinoa. I’m never quite sure when it’s done. I tried this today with a mix of quinoa and other grains. It tasted fine. The liquid was all absorbed. So I’m assuming that it was cooked entirely. In the picture I assumed the quinoa covered the entire bottom of the bowl. So when I got done cooking my quinoa, it didn’t look like very much. maybe in the picture it’s just in that spot not in the whole bottom of the bowl. Any suggestions on cooking quinoa would be greatly appreciated.

  7. I am not a fan of quinoa and neither is my husband. How would steel cut oats do instead of quinoa? I haven’t made this yet, but would like your opinion.
