Chocolate Quinoa Breakfast Bowl

I love oats whether making them quickly with hot water (or steamed cashew milk yum) or soaking overnight (my favorite) but quinoa works just as well for breakfast!

That’s just what I did this morning with a basic recipe that you can change for whatever flavor you like.

I brought a cup of cashew milk up to a boil with a little cinnamon and 1/2 scoop of chocolate protein powder, then added one serving of quinoa (per your packages instructions) and let it simmer until it was cooked and soaked up most of the liquid (but not completely so it’s still soft).

When that’s done I simply topped it with fruit (today I used blueberries, figs, and pomegranate seeds) and a drizzle of honey! Add chia and flax seeds if you have them and enjoy!
