Coconut Quinoa Breakfast Bowls


  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 cup white quinoa
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 cup berries
  • 1 banana, sliced


  1. Stir the water and coconut milk together in a small pot and bring to a boil; add the quinoa, stir, and reduce heat to low. Simmer partially covered until the liquid is absorbed, about 15 minutes. Remove pot from the heat and stir the quinoa.
  2. Replace the cover on the pot and rest for 5 minutes.
  3. Stir maple syrup through the quinoa.
  4. To serve, divide quinoa between four bowls; top with the berries and banana slices.
Mealthy tip:

For the ultimate make ahead, grab-and-go breakfast, divide the cooked quinoa between jars or other airtight containers. Let cool, top with the berries and banana, and refrigerate for up to four days. For a little added protein, top the quinoa with a dollop of coconut yogurt.

I was surprised at how delicious this quinoa breakfast bowl turned out. I skipped the syrup and topped mine with warm, melted peanut butter instead. It was fantastic. Quinoa for breakfast is a new favorite.

I made these ahead of time using the suggestion in the tip box, I stored them in mason jars, then added the berries and banana after they cooled. Perfect for crazy mornings.

These are great for my morning meal prep. Canning jars work perfectly to store. I always add fruit the morning of, usually accompanied by warm, melty peanut butter. So good...

Delicious breakfast bowl! Adding the coconut yogurt topping really set it off. Made it with blueberries and organic strawberries. The kids love it too.
