Try our pina colada quinoa oatmeal for a brand new outlook on breakfast. You’ll think you’re having dessert not breakfast.
1/2 cup steel cut oats or rolled oats
1/4 cup quinoa
1 can coconut milk
2 tbsp honey
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup of sliced pineapple
1 cup almond milk
Bring quinoa, oats and coconut milk to a boil. Reduce to medium-low heat. Add honey and cinnamon. Stir well. Let the oatmeal simmer with the cover on for 15-20 minutes. Stir very frequently to avoid the oatmeal from sticking to the bottom and burning. While oatmeal is cooking chop the pineapple and slice the banana.
Once oatmeal is cooked divide the mixture between two bowls. Add 1/2 cup almond milk to each bowl. Top with pineapple and banana.
If you like, drizzle extra honey and sprinkle extra cinnamon on top. If you’d like to go the above and beyond you could also bring some coconut flakes on top.
