Yummy Mummy Recipe: Cinnamon Apple Quinoa Breakfast Bake

I don't think you can get much more cozy than apple- cinnamony goodness in the mornings at this time of the year. And with so many people trying to stick to their New Year's resolutions (wink) or just trying to be more healthy in general, this recipe is a great make- ahead way to start the day. A nice bonus: you don't even have to pre- cook the quinoa. :)


Yummy Mummy Recipe: Cinnamon Apple Quinoa Breakfast Bake
Ingredients:
1 cup uncooked quinoa
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
2 apples, peeled & diced
1/4 cup raisins
2 eggs
2 cups  milk (soy, almond, or coconut would be good alternatives)
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/3 cup almonds, chopped (pecans are delicious too!)

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. Line a baking pan with parchment (8" * 8" or 7" * 11")
3. Mix the quinoa & spices; place in baking dish
4. Sprinkle apples & raisins over quinoa mix
5. Mix eggs, milk, & syrup & pour over quinoa mixture; top with almonds
