A hot bowl of whole grains is a healthy way to start your day. Surprisingly, oatmeal isn't your only option, so give oatmeal a break and try a quinoa breakfast bowl instead.

This peanut butter and jelly quinoa breakfast bowl is made with real-food ingredients and it's a healthy way to enjoy your favorite childhood flavors. Pre-cooked quinoa makes it even easier and quicker to make so that you can get out the door with a nutritious breakfast in the morning.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1/4 cup milk of choice
  • 1 tablespoon all-natural peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup frozen raspberries

Preparation

  1. In a small saucepan, combine quinoa and milk. Heat over low heat until just simmering.
  2. Stir in peanut butter and remove from heat. Then pour into a bowl.
  3. In a small microwave-safe dish, heat raspberries 30-60 seconds. Pour over quinoa in the bowl.
  4. Drizzle with extra peanut butter, if desired, and enjoy.

Ingredient Variations and Substitutions

You don't have to use quinoa. If you have another whole grain already cooked in your refrigerator (such as farro or millet) try using it in place of quinoa for a fun twist.

You can use almond butter or any other nut butter in place of peanut butter, and any milk of choice.

Any frozen berries will work in place of raspberries.

Cooking and Serving Tips

Heat quinoa and milk over low heat to prevent scorching.

If you like a creamier porridge, add more milk to get your desired texture.

If you are in a hurry, heat quinoa and milk in the microwave, stir in peanut butter and heated berries, and take it to-go in a jar with a lid
