Quinoa Breakfast Bowl

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 2


  • 1/2 cup of quinoa
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1 cup California raisins (natural or golden I used both)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut sugar or more to taste
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 pinch ground nutmeg
  • 1 cloves pinch ground
  • Toppings:
  • Fresh berries
  • Coconut flakes
  • Raisins
  • Pistachios
  • Honey


  1. Rinse quinoa under running water, rubbing them together with your fingers to ensure you wash off all the unpleasant-tasting coating. Drain.
  2. In a medium saucepan, over medium heat, combine quinoa, water, coconut milk and raisins. Bring to a boil; then reduce heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes, or until most of the liquid has evaporated and quinoa has started to soften.
  3. Add coconut sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves; mix to combine. Cover and cook an additional five minutes, adding water if necessary, or until quinoa is soft and fully cooked.
  4. Serve warm, if desired, topped with fresh berries, coconut flakes, raisins, and pistachios. Drizzle with honey.

Recipe Notes

If you like it sweeter you can add some more coconut sugar, agave or maple.
