Of all the ways to eat quinoa, breakfast bowls take the win. A few more I love making are Berry Quinoa Breakfast Bowl and Quinoa Huevos Rancheros.

I cook the quinoa in almond milk sweetened with just a touch of brown sugar (you can use any sweetener or omit if you wish) and serve it with extra warmed milk on the side. That’s just my preference, if you prefer your cereal thicker you can add less milk. Using almond milk makes this a great dairy-free, gluten-free breakfast option for people with allergies.

And for a Fall inspired bowl of quinoa cereal, you can also try my Apples and cinnamon breakfast quinoa which is equally delicious! I also love my Pumpkin Spice Quinoa Breakfast Cookie.

    Please could you tell me the weight of a cup. I measure in gms. Thank you. I just measured 40g. It was my first Aquino breakfast and I really enjoyed it.

  2. I forgot to make my overnight oats last night. 🙁 While I was working, I started to get hungry & realized I had no oats in the fridge. So I looked at your site and found this recipe. I tried it and I loved it. I didn’t have fresh peaches, but I have some no sugar added peaches in the freezer. I defrosted them and heated them. I had blueberries too. I didn’t have honey, though, but I had pure maple syrup. So that’s what I used (just a drizzle of the syrup.) It was so yummy! I’ll make this again for sure and I’ll try the other variations too. Thanks for such a great idea for breakfast!
