Breakfast Quinoa Bowls with Vanilla and Cinnamon

Quinoa is not just for dinner - try it for breakfast with these hearty, nutritious breakfast quinoa bowls, swirled with vanilla, cinnamon, and creamy milk.

It’s the last day of January! How the heck did this month go by so quickly?! Especially when it’s the worst month of the year, in my opinion! Christmas is over, it’s still dark, cold, and rainy, and there’s no holidays or days off to look forward to. At least by February, we’ve got a little more light in the day and we can start looking forward to March and Spring, glorious Spring!

Good riddance, January! ūüėČ

But because we’re still in the depths of Winter, I’m still on the cozy breakfast train. And because most of us are tired of eating oatmeal for the past few months – let’s switch it up!

Today let’s eat QUINOA for breakfast!

Are you keen on quinoa? Because I sure am. ūüėČ

Quinoa is most often eaten as a side on your dinner plate, or as part of a hearty salad. But hear me out – quinoa also makes a delicious and very nutritious breakfast bowl.

Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal is baked in muffin cups to take to go!

Baked Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Cups is a great recipe to prepare in a large batch for the week ahead. They can be eaten like a nutrient-dense oatmeal muffin, or re-heated in a bowl with a splash of milk! I love grabbing one of these for breakfast after getting home from the gym, and munching in the bathroom as I get ready for work.

And the best part? They are gluten-free (if you use certified gluten-free oats) and naturally sweetened with a bit of maple syrup.
