Maple-Walnut Quinoa Breakfast Bowl

Move oatmeal to the back burner — try quinoa, a stellar source of protein and fiber. Coupled with nuts and berries, this light, healthy bowl smacks of cinnamon and syrup. Yum! 


  • 1 cup prepared quinoa

  • ¼ cup plain almond milk or water

  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup

  • 1 tablespoon chopped walnuts

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

  • 1 pinch sea salt

  • ½ tablespoon ground flax seeds

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • ¼ cup blackberries (or other fruit)


  1. Add your quinoa to a small saucepan with almond milk or water. Then mix in remainder of ingredients and heat until warm. 

  2. Consider batch cooking the quinoa ahead of time for a week’s worth of breakfasts (¼ cup dry quinoa per morning).
