Apple Cinnamon Quinoa Bake

apple cinnamon quinoa bakeHey there everyone,

I mentioned in Erin's Daily Eats Day 7, a little about the amazing Apple Cinnamon Quinoa Bake I made for breakfast yesterday. This is a nice hearty breakfast that is still sweet enough to replace any sugary cereals you might be eating in the mornings. Plus as we all know quinoa is a great source of protein to start your morning off on the right foot.

Ingredients

2 Cups Dry Quinoa

3 1/2 Cups Water

2 Cups Dried Apple Rings, Roughly Chopped

4 Eggs

1/3 Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk

1/3 Maple Syrup

1 tsp. Vanilla Sugar

1 Tbls. Ground Cinnamon
