Cinnamon Apple Crockpot Quinoa


I've been on a breakfast kick lately, but breakfast can get mundane with the same old things. So I like to switch it up. This healthy and delicious breakfast is super easy - as in throw it in the slow cooker the night before and forget about it, kind of easy.  This would be a great alternative to oatmeal. 

Cinnamon Apple Crockpot Quinoa
Makes 6 servings

1 cup quinoa, rinsed
2 cups coconut almond milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 small apple, peeled and cut in to small cubes
1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce
2-3 tbsp. real maple syrup or raw honey
2 tsp. ground cinnamon or 2 cinnamon sticks
dash of salt

Combine all the ingredients in your crockpot. Turn it on the lowest setting (low may be too hot for in some slow cookers, if you're cooks a little hot then set on warm) and go to bed.  Eight hours later when you wake up your breakfast is waiting for you. Perfect for Thanksgiving morning, Christmas morning, or any morning for that matter! Top with extra milk and apples if you like.
