Slow-Cooker Apple Pie Quinoa

Oatmeal Lovers Need to Try This Slow-Cooker Apple Pie Quinoa

Want to go wake up to the smell of an apple pie that's actually healthy enough to eat for breakfast? If you love oatmeal, but are also kind of sick of having it so much, you'll love this hot breakfast made with quinoa instead. Since it's cooked in soy milk, it has an unbelievably creamy consistency that offers almost 13 grams of protein per serving and 7.5 grams of fiber. This is one delicious and filling breakfast!

This recipe is easy to throw together — literally — because, thanks to the marvel of the crockpot, all you need to do is throw a few basic ingredients in, turn it on, and the warm smell of apples and cinnamon will pull you from your sweet slumber.

Notes

This recipe is subtly sweet, so if you want it sweeter, drizzle a little extra maple syrup on your quinoa, or add more dried or fresh fruit.
