Apples and Cinnamon Quinoa Breakfast

This is a nice alternative to oatmeal with the added value of protein found in quinoa. The apples provide a natural sweetness that means you don't have to add any sugar.

  1. This looks so tasty. I love hot quinoa cereal and have a bunch of apples that need cooking. Breakfast tomorrow!

    I just tried this recipe and it was delicious! I’m not much of a breakfast person, but this could make me change my mind. I found it keeps well and can be made in advance and reheated. Thanks for the recipe!
