Apple Cinnamon Quinoa Breakfast

There’s something about the smell of cooked apples & cinnamon in the morning. Especially on a cool fall day, when the leaves are turning multiple colors and starting to fall from the trees.  The aromas make you feel comfy and warm inside. Quinoa is easily digested, extremely nutritious and is a fantastic way to start your day. This recipe takes approx 15 minutes to cook.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup flaked quinoa
  • 2 cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 tsp organic vanilla
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp allspice
  • 1/2 cup cranberries
  • 1 med green apple chopped small
  • 1 tbsp raw agave ( add more if sweetness if required)
  • 1/2 cup raw walnuts, chopped
  • 3 tbsp raw sunflower seeds
  • 1 cup fresh organic blueberries

Instructions

  1. Bring almond milk, cinnamon, vanilla & allspice to a boil in a medium sauce pot
  2. Add quinoa and then place lid on pot and reduce to low heat
  3. After 2 mins stir in chopped apple and simmer for approx 5 mins longer
  4. Stir and check for remaining liquid and if most is absorbed then remove from heat, leaving lid on pot and let rest for approx 3 mins to absorb the rest of the milk
  5. Top each bowl of quinoa with chopped walnuts, sunflower seeds, cranberries, blueberries and drizzle with raw agave to your liking of sweetness
  6. Enjoy!
