Quinoa Breakfast Bowl with Berries

Quinoa Breakfast Bowl

If you need to change up your breakfast routine and want something healthy, then a quinoa breakfast bowl is for you.

Cooked quinoa makes a great stand-in for cereal or oats. It’s packed with protein, fiber, and good carbohydrates to give you the energy to get through your morning.

A batch of plain cooked quinoa keeps for about 5 days in the refrigerator, so whip up a batch on Sunday to have quick breakfasts all week long.

Why Quinoa for Breakfast?

A seed that cooks like a grain, quinoa is one of the most versatile ingredients in your kitchen.

Quinoa makes a great substitute for cooked rice or grains in just about any savory dish, but you might not know that it’s great in sweet preparations, too. This quinoa breakfast bowl makes a great, simple, healthy breakfast when you’re trying to avoid grains and/or boost your protein intake in the morning.

If your quinoa is already cooked, this breakfast comes together as fast as pouring a bowl of cereal.

Quinoa Breakfast Bowl Ingredients

I like to keep my quinoa breakfast bowls pretty simple with ingredients I can just grab out of the refrigerator.

Cooked Quinoa:

Learn how to cook perfectly fluffy quinoa over on this post (there’s a video that shows you the trick, too!).

Plant-Based Milk:

I prefer unsweetened almond milk here. Use whatever milk works for you—I suggest always using unsweetened plant-based milk to keep the sugar content low.

Berries or Other Fruit:

This is where you can make it your own! I love it with berries and a little finely chopped apple. Use any in-season fruit that’s a good price. Frozen berries also work great, too.

Natural Sweetness & Flavor:

A drizzle of honey and a sprinkle of cinnamon make this berry quinoa breakfast bowl a winner every time. I prefer raw honey or maple syrup, or choose a natural sweetener that you like best (read about the top 5 best natural sweeteners here).

Optional: Nuts or Seeds

Add a few teaspoons of chopped nuts or seeds to add even more fiber and healthy fat to your quinoa breakfast bowl. I like to add a teaspoon of hemp seeds on top of mine.
