Cinnamon Apple Quinoa

Recipe and Photo from:

As the days cool off and the leaves begin to turn, its nice  to start the day with a warm sweet breakfast. Take advantage of the fall  apple harvest for this great breakfast idea. This recipe makes 2 servings but could easily be doubled to last you the week.


1/2 cup Quinoa

1 1/2 cups water

2 large apples

2 tsp. cinnamon

Honey/Maple Syrup for drizzle


  1. Peel and core apples, chopped into bite-sized pieces.
    (Note: leaving the peel on adds extra fiber.)
  2. Add quinoa, water and apples to a sauce pan. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce to simmer for 20-25 minutes. The apples will be soft and the quinoa will have absorbed the water.
  3. Stir in cinnamon and transfer mixture to two bowls.
  4. Drizzle with honey and sprinkle with additional cinnamon if desired.
