A simple breakfast recipe, this Apple Cinnamon Breakfast Quinoa is a warm and comforting dish begging to be topped with fresh berries or your favorite chopped nuts.


  • 1/2 cup Simply Nature Organic Quinoa
  • Pinch of Stonemill Pink Himalayan Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Simply Nature Organic Cinnamon
  • 2 cups Friendly Farms Organic Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • 1/2 apple, grated
  • Specially Selected Pure Maple Syrup, to taste
  • Optional toppings: Fresh berries, chopped nuts… even a sprinkle of chocolate chips!


  1. Add quinoa, pink salt, cinnamon and 1 1/2 cups of almond milk to a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat.
  2. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover and allow quinoa to simmer until it’s nice and soft, approximately 15-18 minutes. (Note: Please keep an eye on the quinoa so the milk does not dissolve and it does not burn.)
  3. Remove from the heat and stir in the grated apple.
  4. Divide into two bowls, top with a drizzle of maple syrup and remaining almond milk. Stir.
  5. Top with fresh berries and chopped nuts or desired toppings and enjoy.
