Have quinoa for breakfast with this easy cinnamon quinoa breakfast bowl. It’s vegan, gluten-free and the quinoa packs in a good amount of protein. 


  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1/2 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 Tablespoon chia seeds (or ground flaxseed)
  • 2 Tablespoons raisins
  • 1 Tablespoon peanut or almond butter
  • maple syrup + banana slices for topping (optional)


  1. Rinse quinoa and drain.
  2. Place milk and rinsed quinoa into a small saucepan and bring to a boil.
  3. Add cinnamon and vanilla.
  4. Reduce to a simmer and cook about 15 minutes, or until all liquid is absorbed. Watch the pot carefully and stir often because it has a tendency to want to boil over.
  5. When ready to eat, place a portion of the quinoa into a bowl, drizzle with maple syrup and top with chia seeds, raisins and nut butter.
