Blueberry Lemon Breakfast Quinoa

Rating: 4.52 stars
Sweet blueberries and tart lemon pair well in this alternative to oatmeal. High in protein and fiber, quinoa is a great start to your day! I made this up one morning when I had a craving for quinoa and was looking for a change from the usual. Top with extra milk for a thinner consistency. Also good with a sprinkle of cinnamon or nutmeg.

Pineapple-Coconut Baked Oatmeal

Rating: 5 stars

This flavor combination is inspired by the tropics. The first thing you'll taste is a pop of sweetness from pineapple, and next comes the coconut flavor. It's warm, somewhat creamy, but still a bit chewy as oatmeal always is, and totally delicious. Feel free to add a sprinkle of coconut or a drizzle of honey or milk when serving.
