Brr!!! I woke up this morning, and the temperature was at 1 degree!! Baby, it’s cold outside!
Even Sammy did not want to leave the warm fire. He just camps out here!
Days like this I really miss oatmeal. Since deciding to go gluten free and grain free, I am not eating oatmeal. I used to have oatmeal for breakfast every morning!
I decided to try breakfast cereal with quinoa flakes, and it turned out really well! Very comforting, and filling! This kept me full for hours!
Apple Quinoa Breakfast Cereal
Print this recipe!
2/3 cup quinoa flakes
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
2 tbsp chia seeds
1/4 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp allspice
1/4 tsp cloves
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 large apple, peeled and chopped
2 tbsp walnuts, chopped
In a medium pot over medium heat, whisk together quinoa flakes, milk, chia seeds, spices, apple and applesauce.
Cook for 15-20 minutes, until milk is absorbed, and mixture has thickened.
Pour into a bowl and sprinkle with walnuts.
I thought this was plenty sweet on its own – I think the applesauce really bumped up the “natural” sweet factor. My husband added some maple syrup.
Serve with a latte!
Warms you on the inside and out!
Have a great day!
