  • Crockpot Breakfast Quinoa

    Healthy, delicious, easy and recipe makes enough to give you about 1 cup per day for 5-6 days. YUM!

    1 1/2 cups quinoa (rinsed)
    3 cups water
    5 packs Truvia (or Stevia)
    4 Tablespoons maple syrup
    1/2 cup dried cranberries or raisins (no sugar added)
    slivered almonds
    1/4 teaspoon of salt (do not forget this part)

    Put all ingredients in crockpot and stir. Cook on low overnight. I think adding a dab of pure vanilla would be good too.

    Serving size 3/4 cup
    Calories 243
    Fat 6.7g
    Protein 9g
    Carbs 37g
    Sugar 13g
    Sodium 88g

    I didn't get the fiber count on this recipe. But quinoa is a very good source of fiber.

    Enjoy!

  • This looks awesome BD! Thanks for sharing!

    Does it keep well in the fridge?

    • Seems to. If ever it seems a bit dry when you take it from the fridge, just add a dab of milk or water before reheating. I suppose it would also be good cold.

        • Quinoa (Keen-wah) is an amazing little whole grain.

          I would suggest that everyone who is interested in improving the quality of the calories they consume, use it in place of white rice or other pasta that is cut to a like or similar size.

          The benefits of consuming an entire grain (with the germ still attached) that is high in fiber are very beneficial.

          So try Quinoa next time...
