Healthy, high-fibre quinoa breakfast

I was inspired to create this for brekky after trying something similar when I was at the Hamilton Island Instameet a couple of weekends ago. They had a ‘make-your-own’ adventure breakfast bar set up with countless numbers of nuts, grains, fruits, yoghurts, seeds etc to choose from. I went for something so yummy and healthy that I have since replicated it in my own kitchen for the last 7 days in a row. I am actually obsessed- so yummy and so good for you.

So, what is in this breakfast creation? The main ingredient is super-grain, Quinoa (cook this first about 1/2 cup per person), LSA (ground linseed, almonds and sunflower seeds, 2 Tbspns), Chia seeds (1 Tbspn black or white), Yoghurt (1/2 cup), roasted slivered almonds (2 Tbspns), fresh fruit (whatever you fancy) and a good squeeze of honey on top. Mix it all up and voila, get in ma’ belly!

What I love about this breakfast is that it covers all of the essentials- fibre, protein, dairy, vitamins, minerals and good fats.

Cooked quinoa looks like this:

All of the ingredients in a bowl before you mix them:

Post mix and pre consumption- oh yum!

    Love your website!!!!!!! I am trying to get more healthy and plan to try this – looks really yum. Probably a v silly question but do you cook the quinoa and then add the other things and eat while it is hot or do you wait until it cools down before you add the other ingredients and eat or does it not matter? Thanks!

    Just tried this, so delish! Although 1/2 cup raw quinoa does turn out to be quite a lot… i’ve put half in the fridge for tomorrow’s brekky! Do you use 1/2 cup raw or 1/2 cup cooked?

    Yummo!! I will definitely be attempting the quinoa brekky over the weekend, fingers crossed I can also tempt a fussy 4yo boy to give it a go! Love your website and it’s great that RJL is now on Facebook.

    Love Quinoa….keeps you full for so long too! Got this idea from the Noosa Food Market…cook quinoa in low fat coconut milk, add cinnamon and bananas. I sweeten with native stevia and it really is scrumptious!

    Amazing breaky! You can also add some raw cacao powder for a chocolate hit, which is a great source of magnesium and some cinnamon to help boost the metabolism. Will be making this on the weekend. Thanks
