Earlier this week we told you about the amazing health benefits of quinoa and today we have a great recipe that makes the perfect alternative to traditional oatmeal.  Even better is it contains more protein and fiber which will help keep your little ones fuller longer!!

  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 2 cups plant based milk (almond and coconut milk work well)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon raw cane sugar
  • 2 tablespoons dried goji berries
  • 1/4 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • handful of fresh raspberries
  • 1 tablespoon dried, raw coconut flakes
  • 1 tablespoon sunflower seeds

Preparation:

  1. Rinse the quinoa and strain well. Add to sauce pan, turn on heat.
  2. Let quinoa lightly toast for about a minute, being sure to shake the pan now and again so it doesn’t burn.
  3. Add the milk and bring to a boil. Lower heat and add cinnamon, raw cane sugar and dried goji berries.
  4. Cook covered for about 15 minutes, turning the heat down as low as possible. Once the quinoa is cooked, turn off heat.
  5. Add the blueberries, sunflower seeds and coconut flakes. Let stand covered for 5 minutes.
  6. Before serving, add add a bit more milk and the raspberries.
