Absolutely lovely! I didn’t put enough cinnamon in for my taste, but I can rectify that next time. I used hazelnuts because that’s what I had to hand. Yummm!! I will definitely make this again... 😍

This was very good. I made it to recipe with one exception. I did not have quinoa on hand. Instead I used a quinoa/amaranth/millet blend. I saw comments about the level of sweetness, but I prefer mildly sweet, so for me it was perfect, allowing all the other flavors to shine. I will make it again.

I deviated from the recipe some by doubling the amount of quinoa, doubling plus adding extra coconut milk and some soy milk, which allowed the quinoa to cook further without any liquid leftover. Then, as an idea spurred by another reviewer, I made a bananas foster recipe for the topping. It wasn't nearly as healthy as the original recipe but it was delicious!
Absolutely delicious! Made kinda bananas foster added nutmeg, cloves, and a little cream of tarter with brown sugar. Cut banana in half and put slices on top towards the end of the quinoa being fully cooked. Amazinggggg!!! Great quick, sweet power snack!

This was very good and super easy. I did not have any bananas on hand so I cut an apple up and used that instead.

Nice, easy, and something different. I made 2 changes to the recipe due to what was in my pantry. I replaced pecans with chopped almonds and used full-fat coconut milk. Very tasty, but I would have trouble eating a full portion in one meal. Way too much food, but a nice alternative to cereal.

I didn't like the coconut milk as much as I thought I would. The texture was nice though. Thanks for sharing.

This was a really good breakfast alternative. I would most def make it again. When I try it again I will play with the fruits that I put in. Also, my husband and I are excited to try it with some of out fresh blueberries and strawberries.
