Quinoa Breakfast Cereal

We all know how healthy and wholesome quinoa is. Try it for breakfast for protein and a substantial meal to last all morning!


  • 1 cup cooked quinoa
  • maple syrup, or sweetener of your choice
  • cinnamon
  • milk, I used almond milk
  • other add-ins of your choice: raisins, nuts, cranberries, dried fruit

Cook quinoa in water as directed – (1 cup of quinoa to 2 cups of water. Add quinoa to boiling water, reduce to simmer and cover. Cook for 15 minutes or until water is absorbed.)

Add desired amount of cooked quinoa to a bowl. Add desired amount of milk; I used the very last bit of my almond milk and it ended up being about 1/3 of a cup. If you like it “soupier” add more.

Sprinkle with cinnamon, add sweetener and enjoy! Get creative – sub quinoa as your oatmeal and add your favorite add-ins as you would with your oats.
