Quinoa Berry Breakfast

My amazing friend Katelyn whipped up this delicious breakfast for me this morning and I loved it so much I had to share! Quinoa can be a wonderful oat alternative for breakfast. Since it’s a perfect protein you get all the fiber from oatmeal but the added bonus of protein as well! As we head into the fall and colder months, I have a feeling this might become a morning go-to for me.

QUINOA BERRY BREAKFAST
1/4 cup quinoa
1/2 cup almond milk
1 banana
A handful of berries ( I use blueberries and raspberries for mine)
1 tbsp of coconut oil
1 tbsp of Chia seeds

Boil your almond milk in a saucepan with your quinoa constantly stirring. Add chopped up bananas and berries immediately as well as your chia seeds and coconut oil. This way everything is a nice hot gooey mush together! You can add more bananas and berries on top when it’s done or if you want to really spice it up sprinkle some chopped almonds or granola!
