This hearty quinoa breakfast bowl is topped with sliced almonds, bananas, and almond butter, but you can easily mix and match toppings. For a drizzled look, warm the almond butter slightly in the microwave before topping each bowl.

Cinnamon-Quinoa Breakfast Bowl

Active Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes

Serves 4
  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, plus more for sprinkling
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 medium bananas, sliced
  • 1/4 cup almond butter

Combine almond milk, quinoa, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the quinoa is tender, 10 to 15 minutes.

Divide the quinoa among four bowls; top each evenly with banana slices, almond butter, and sliced almonds. Sprinkle each with a little cinnamon, if desired.
