If you've been following me for any extended period of time you know this: I love quinoa breakfast recipes! I think quinoa is the ultimate breakfast food for a few reasons, but mainly it's easy.

Breakfast isn't supposed to be something overly complicated or time-consuming. It's something you should be able to throw together in a matter of minutes. Or better yet, make it ahead of time.

Cooking Quinoa for Breakfast

A New Way of Cooking Quinoa for Breakfast

I didn't think it was possible to find a new way to enjoy quinoa, but I have discovered something great with this quinoa breakfast cereal!

And guess what?! It's just plain cooked quinoa.

When I think about adding cooked quinoa to my meals, I usually toss it with some veggies, maybe a little protein, the occasional piece of fruit, and call it a day. But I've never thought to eat it like granola.

Just plain cooked quinoa.

Eaten as if it were cereal.

Nothing added.

So simple.

And oh-so-very good.

How to Meal Prep Breakfast Cereal

For meal prep purposes, you can think of this breakfast bowl as a parfait. We're layering it in a jar which means we're keeping the ingredients separated and fresh, but also making the recipe portable.

When you're ready to eat it, all you gotta do is just dump it into a bowl, give it a stir and enjoy.

Quinoa will last in the fridge for at least 4 – 5 days. As will the yogurt and berries. I like to keep the berries on top to keep them as fresh as possible, but you could easily make 4 – 5 batches of these and have them for breakfast all week long!

The Ultimate Quinoa Breakfast Recipe

My quinoa breakfast game was totally just kicked up a notch.

Some of you may be thinking, “how has she not thought of this sooner?” My reply to you is, “I don't know!!! How could I have been missing this the whole time?” I'm feeling a bit sheepish and behind the times on this one.

So, my friends, cooked quinoa is not only a scrumptious addition to salads or even a lively side dish.

No, it's quinoa breakfast cereal is a thing. And you need to hop on board!

  1. This is so delicous and filling too! Will definitely be making this part of my breakfast routine. Topped with chopped walnuts for that extra crunch. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Holy Cow these are good!!! There is something deliciously awesome about the yogurt and quinoa mixture. The yogurt is creamy and there is a slight crunch to the quinoa. Yum! I don’t know why this recipe only has four stars, because this is my new go to breakfast. Thanks for this incredible idea!

    I’ve never thought about using it as a granola either. I’ve seen lots of recipes for it as oatmeal but not granola. Looks so good with the cherries!
    Whaaat?? – almond yogurt? haven’t seen that one yet. Must not be in Canada yet 😛 I’ll have to look for it on my visit to Seattle this weekend.

    Hope you have a great weekend!

    1. Almond yogurt, yes!! The brand is Amande and it’s fabulous! Not too sweet and such an awesome texture. So much better than soy in my opinion 🙂

      Hope you find it!! Have a happy weekend!

  10. Breakfast quinoa is our FAVORITE around here. We (loosely) follow this recipe:
    (We use raw milk, maple syrup, mixed frozen berries, and chopped crispy almonds and cashews. We also add some coconut oil in while cooking.)
    I HIGHLY recommend it!

  11. ummm i’m definitely going to need to buy some raspberry flavored amande almondmilk yogurt when i visit! do they sell it at city market? they definitely do NOT sell it at my local ghettochopper (however, if you are shopping for pigs’ feet, they have an abundance)

  12. I love quinoa and yogurt for breakfast. Bananas and peanuts are among my favorite stir ins.

    Your blueberries and cherries look so fresh and lovely, I think I will break early for lunch and fix myself some kiwi, quinoa, and almond milk.

    Thanks for sharing your quinoa love with the world.
