Breakfast Quinoa

If you need a change from oatmeal, this easy breakfast is perfect for you! Subbing quinoa for oats adds some plant-based, complete source of protein to your breakfast and can be a fun way to change things up! This recipe is super simple and perfect for anyone with a sweet tooth! Maple syrup and dates are delicious and healthy sources of natural sugars. The dates pack a ton of fiber and are full of minerals such as magnesium and potassium! This recipe can be easily adapted and changed to your own preferences and favourite combinations. We think peanut butter and banana or strawberries and dark chocolate chips would be an excellent combination!
