 Apple Pie Breakfast Quinoa

Quinoa for breakfast isn’t the typical. I feel like oatmeal is the big winner of breakfast and quinoa shows up in salads for lunch or as the grain for dinner. The very first time I ever heard of quinoa being a breakfast food was when I saw a box of GoGo Quinoa Flakes in the gluten-free aisle of the grocery store:

I also remember that I pronounced the word quinoa quite incorrectly when I first told my hubby about it. This is a thing you should know about me-I’m pretty sure I’ll be famous for it one day, but I find a way to mispronounce everything! It’s a disease!

Anyway. Breakfast quinoa. It’s awesome. This version is slightly sweet with crunch from the apple. The apple is key. If you have a morning sweet tooth, but crave something healthy, I cannot recommend this enough.
