Cinnamon Apple Quinoa with Roasted Cinnamon Honey Walnuts

Posted on November 28, 2015 at 8:45 PM

For those cold mornings, this yummy breakfast is loaded with protein and lots of fiber. I love this quinoa option, instead of oatmeal. Please, do not get me wrong, this girl loves her oatmeal, but let's expand our minds a little. The breakfast is also great if you use millet, aramanth or the classic steel cut oats. Enjoy! 

Cinnamon Apple Quinoa with

Roasted Cinnamon Honey Walnuts

For Quinoa

2 cup of water

1 cup of Quinoa

1 medium apple chopped ( add at

the end)

1 tbsp. of cinnamon

pinch of sea salt

1 tbsp. of honey to drizzle over

oatmeal, optional

Cinnamon Honey Walnuts

1/4 cup of organic honey

1 tbsp. coconut oil

1/2 tbsp. of cinnamon

2 cups of walnuts or pecans

3/4 tsp. of sea salt



1. Wash the quinoa with water, using a strainer. Drain off the water just like you

do rice.

2. Place quinoa and water in a medium sized saucepan, bring to a boil. Reduce to a

simmer, cover, and cook until all of the water is absorbed (about 15 minutes).

3. You will know that the quinoa is done when all the grains have turned from

white to transparent, and the spiral-like germ has separated. Remove from heat and set aside. While quinoa is

cooking prepare walnuts.

Roasted Cinnamon Honey Walnuts

1. Line rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper; grease paper with the coconut oil. Set aside.

2. Take the honey and warm it over a double boiler. Using a medium

microwaveable bowl, add honey in the bowl. Add water in a deep sauce pan and

place bowl on top. Simmer the water on low heat, do not allow the water to touch

the bowl. Allow the honey to warm up, 1-2 mins. Stir in cinnamon. Add nuts and

toss to coat; spread on prepared pan. Bake in the oven at 350°F, stirring once,

until golden and bubbly, about 15 minutes. Transfer sheet to a cooling rack and

stir; let cool completely (mixture will harden). Break up into bite size pieces and

place in bowl; toss with salt.

3. Stir apples into your quinoa,. Also stir in the tbsp. of cinnamon and a pinch of


4. Add quinoa into a bowl and add the roasted cinnamon honey walnuts on top and a

drizzle of honey.

You will have more than enough roasted walnuts for another breakfast or you can

toss it over ice cream, cupcakes, even on salads.

I like to add a little warmed almond milk sometimes to this recipe when I want more

of a cereal consistency.

TIP: Also add cranberries or raisin instead of the cinnamon honey

walnuts. It is a great alternative for people with nut allergies.
