Cinnamon Apple Quinoa Breakfast

Delicious, healthy and low-fat breakfast {or have a bowl as a pick-me-up snack !}

After my surgery a few weeks ago, I did not eat anything for two days. I slept a lot and when I was awake the last thing on my mind was food. One morning I woke up starving ! And this Cinnamon Apple Quinoa was the first thing I wanted.

It is great for breakfast, but since then I had it several times ... not only for breakfast, but lunch, snack, dessert and even for dinner a couple of times as I am still learning how and what I can and can not eat.

Really does not bother me, I will have the Cinnamon Apple Quinoa everyday. It is deliciously creamy and is even better without the Blueberry topping.


Hubby and my son would also have a bowl (now and then), but seeing as they are more of the Oatmeal and Coco-Pops fans - not saying who likes which ! - I normally make single servings for myself, which is not 1/4 of the recipe (at least half the recipe for me thank you!)

Cinnamon Apple Quinoa Breakfast


Serves : 4

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup Quinoa, rinsed
3/4 cup Low-Fat Milk
2 TB Honey
1 t Vanilla
1/4 t Ground Cinnamon
2 Red Apples, grated
1/2 cup Blueberries

DIRECTIONS:

1.) Cook the Quinoa as per the instructions on the packet until just done - drain and set aside.
2.) Heat the Milk, Honey, Vanilla and Cinnamon until boiling point - add Quinoa and Apple - cook a further 5 minutes until creamy over medium heat.

Spoon into serving bowls, top with Blueberries and Almonds (if using) - Serve immediately.
