Have you ever had quinoa for breakfast? Quinoa can be very versatile. I have used quinoa in cookies and stir fries in the past, but this was my first try eating quinoa for breakfast. Quinoa is naturally gluten free, so it’s a great alternative to oatmeal. This slow cooker breakfast quinoa was much better than I ever expected! Slow cooking the quinoa allowed the sugars in the dates and apples to come out. I added no sugar at all to this slow cooker breakfast quinoa.
This would be the perfect breakfast to make if you were having company over. It makes a good amount. Like I said before, I thought it was plenty sweet without sugar, but if you like things a bit sweeter, you can always add some maple syrup to it in the morning.
