Quinoa isn't just for savory dishes - we love using it as a protein-rich breakfast paired with fresh fruit and nuts.

  • 3/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut
  • Optional: 3 tbsp hemp seeds
  • For topping: fresh berries, coconut flakes, chopped nuts, nut butter, etc.


  1. Cook quinoa in water according to package directions.
  2. Once quinoa is fully cooked, stir in melted coconut oil, cinnamon, maple syrup, coconut and hemp seeds (if using).
  3. Enjoy topped with fresh berries, coconut and/or nut butter, or store in refrigerator in airtight container for up to one week.


For more flavor, you can also stir in other spices, nut butters, dried fruit, etc.
