Good morning Sunshine! I take breakfast (along with lunch, dinner and healthy food in general) pretty seriously! So when I prepare breakfast for my family, I want to make sure that besides being delicious, it is also healthy, pretty and packed with a complete powerhouse of nutrition.
This quinoa breakfast cereal is my yummy alternative to the traditional bowl of oatmeal. It's quick cooking and packed with protein, and when tossed with coconut oil, I think it's pretty much the perfect way to start the day.
Quinoa Breakfast Cereal
- 1 cup quinoa, rinsed and drained
- 1 tablespoons organic, unrefined coconut oil
- 2 tablespoons hemp seeds
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- pinch of sea salt salt
Bring 1 3/4 cup water (or almond milk) and 1 cup quinoa to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and cook until almost all of the liquid is absorbed, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat, place a sheet of paper towel across the pot, then cover, and let sit for about ten minutes. This will ensure a fluffy batch of quinoa every time.
Fluff the quinoa with a fork. Add the coconut oil, hemp seeds, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt, and toss well. Add your favorite fruit and superfood combinations, a drizzle of honey, and dig in!
