Coconut Almond Breakfast Quinoa

I have to be honest, I am pretty much obsessed with this breakfast quinoa – I made a batch on Sunday and ate it for breakfast every day this week.  Seriously it is that good!  The fact that it is healthy and a huge time-saver if you prep a batch for the week like I did makes it even better. 


1 cup quinoa (uncooked)
1 1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (I use Silk)
1/4 cup unsweetened flaked coconut (Bob’s Red Mill is great)
1/3 cup slivered almonds (you can find these in the baking section)
2 tbsp brown sugar (you can add more if you prefer it a bit sweeter)


  1. In a strainer rinse quinoa under running water
  2. Add rinsed quinoa to almond milk in a pot, cover and bring to a boil.  You will want to keep an eye on this since it can boil over very quickly…I learned this lesson the hard way
  3. Once boiling reduce to a simmer for 15- 20 mins until fully cooked
  4. Fluff cooked quinoa with a fork
  5. Stir in coconut, slivered almonds and brown sugar

Serves 6 (3/4 cup servings)

That’s it! Super easy right?  I can’t wait to hear how much you love this recipe.
