Wake up to a beautiful, warm breakfast infused with maple syrup and cinnamon!

This was a first attempt at cooking up a quinoa recipe for breakfast, and it was absolutely delicious as well as nutritious . It's super easy, just throw it in the crock pot and voila! Breakfast is ready !

Quinoa is one of those ingredients that I shied away from as I didn't really understand what it was, but when I realized it was gluten free I figured I would jump on the quinoa train. And I'm so glad I did... this stuff is gold! You can add frozen berries and nuts to this recipe or just throw in your favorite berries or fruits of choice. I served this with fresh banana and drizzled with maple syrup and it was delicious.

Quinoa originated with the Incas in the mountains of Bolivia, Chile and Peru. It’s been a main ingredient used in this region for 5,000 years. Quinoa is an amazing superfood that is worth incorporating into your weekly menu, whether its a breakfast meal or a dinner. Enjoy!

Directions

  1. Rinse the quinoa under cold water in a fine mesh colander.
  2. Spray your slow cooker with non stick spray. Add all the ingredients together and mix gently.
  3. Cover and cook for 6 hours on low.
  4. Serve with sliced banana and a drizzle of maple syrup.
