Apple Cinnamon Quinoa Bake

Quinoa is not just for savory dishes.  It can be used in many sweet recipes such as this Apple Cinnamon Quinoa Bake.  Even those this Apple Cinnamon Quinoa Bake closely resembles muffins, I decided they were a little too soft to call them muffins.  These almost remind me of my baked oatmeal recipes.  This is the kind of breakfast you eat with a fork more than your hand.  If you like baked oatmeal, but do not tolerate oats well, this is the perfect alternative.  Not only is this Apple Cinnamon Quinoa Bake tasty, it also has no added sugars!  I sweetened mine with dates, apples and applesauce.

Apple Cinnamon Quinoa Bake - My Whole Food Life

This Apple Cinnamon Quinoa Bake is vegan and gluten free.  I made mine into jumbo sized muffins, but you can probably bake the whole thing in a pan as well.  You may have to adjust the cooking time though.  This would make a great weekend breakfast.  Your house will smell amazing as it cooks too!

Chocolate Strawberry Chia Pudding

Have you tried chia seeds?  Those little seeds are packed with protein and fiber.  Not to mention healthy fats. Chia pudding is a very common way to get them into your diet.  I already have a coconut vanilla chia pudding on my blog, so I thought I would add a chocolate strawberry chia pudding to the list.  Chocolate and strawberries go so well together, don’t they?  If you like this chocolate strawberry chia pudding, you may also like my strawberry creme truffles.
