Sweet Cinnamon Quinoa

Print article  

sweet cinnamon quinoa

Quinoa is a versatile, super-nutritious grain. It can be made savory or sweet, and it's great for any meal of the day. This recipe features just the right amount of sweet and can be customized to your taste preferences. It calls for blackberries and toasted pecans, but you could easily use blueberries and walnuts or other replacements. Add a touch of agave nectar or another sweetener, and you’ve got yourself a fabulous warm breakfast option with less than 300 calories and 9 grams of protein.

"Love it! Perfect option for breakfast. Great way to try a sweet version of a quinoa dish."— Rachel V.
