cinnamon quinoa recipe with dates

With the rise of healthy eating, quinoa has taken center stage as one of the most popular superfoods on the planet. Since this ancient grain, which originated from the regions of Peru and Bolivia, is so versatile, I try to incorporate quinoa into mealtime whenever possible.

One of my favorite ways to use quinoa is at breakfast. It’s a refreshing change from the usual dull breakfast grains made famous by cereals like Cream of Wheat and Oatmeal. The thing I love most about quinoa is its versatility. It’s creamy and nutty, yet takes on the personality and flavors it is paired with.

In this recipe, the combination of cinnamon, crunchy almonds, sweet Medjool dates and honey, a pinch of salt, and a splash of almond milk create a nutritionally dense, flavor-packed dish that is perfect for breakfast but makes a delicious mid-day snack too.
