I omitted the butter maple syrup and almonds. Instead I fried the apples in a vegetable oil sprayed pan added raisins for sweetness and used pecans as the nuts. I also used soy milk instead of almond milk. This is a nice grainy kind of cereal that brings out the taste of the cinnamon flavored apples. I'll be making this again!
Good recipe; butter apples & cinnamon can hardly be beat. I love quinoa but imagine you could substitute a variety of different grains and have a wonderful breakfast. Thank you Alyse for posting this yummy healthy breakfast.
I adore quinoa - love its taste/texture versatility and it's super healthy! I am always excited to find new ways to prepare it and loved the sound of this one. I used pure maple syrup and light vanilla soy as it happened to be open in my fridge while my almond milk was not yet! I opted to leave out the half and half as well. This was an enjoyable breakfast substantial and very yummy!
Tasty but frying the apples in butter kind of defeats the health benefits of quinoa. I just add the apples and cinnamon to the quinoa and cook it all together. I sweeten with stevia but you can certainly use the maple syrup for flavor and sweetness. I also add one-quarter cup walnuts for some healty fat but that's a personal preference.
My children took one look at this and started to cry until I forced them to smell it. Then they cleaned their bowls! I liked how another reviewer said to add raisins. I'll try that next time. Thanks for a nice recipe!
