Apple Cinnamon Breakfast Quinoa

Today's recipe comes from Skinnytaste.com.  I modified this recipe from the website for just one person, me.  My husband is not a breakfast person and I didn't want to end up with four servings.  Overall, the recipe came out pretty great, and you can add more flavor to it if you'd like, such as almond butter.

Here's what you'll need:
  • 1/4 cup quinoa
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon or apple pie spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (or almond extract)
  • 2 tablespoons apple sauce (and 1 tablespoon almond butter)
Add water, quinoa, cinnamon and extract to a small pot, and wait for water to bowl.  Low heat and keep lid on until all the water has evaporated, usually 10 to 15 minutes.
Put the quinoa in a bowl and add the applesauce and stir.  Enjoy!
