Quinoa Breakfast Cereal

It’s officially fall! Fall means pumpkins, apples, warm sweaters, generous cups of hot drinks, and tasty breakfast cereals 🙂

In my refrigerator, I had some leftover quinoa that was begging to be used for breakfast. So, I took it out and combined it with some fruit, nuts, spices and seeds. The result–an amazing, filling breakfast option.

Here’s the recipe:

1/2 cup cooked quinoa
1 apple, peeled and cored
1 tsp cinnamon or spice blend of your choice (I chose pumpkin spice)
1/4 cup almonds
1/4 sunflower seeds
1/4 cup shredded coconut

Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl. Lightly oil a baking pan and spread your mixture over the pan. Bake for 30 minutes, then enjoy 🙂
