In case you hadn’t heard, quinoa isn’t just for side salads.

This super grain is stealing the show lately, bringing its plant-based protein power to center stage as the base in warm, hearty breakfast bowls.

Cooked in sweet, creamy, coconut milk and swirled with fresh strawberries, cinnamon and vanilla, this coconut quinoa breakfast bowl tastes similar to traditional oatmeal but packs about two grams more protein per serving.

To add even more plant power, I’ve incorporated Burt’s Beesβ„’ new Protein +Healthy Radiance. It has 15 grams of plant-based protein per serving, 3 grams of fiber, and added vitamins and minerals. Plus, it’s really tasty!

The protein and fiber, combined with healthy fat from the coconut milk, give this breakfast bowl major staying power. Both fiber and fat slow digestion so that nutrients are released slowly into the body, giving you sustained energy for hours after a meal. Meanwhile, the protein helps to provide lingering satiety, so you won’t be starving again come mid-morning.

While I like my coconut quinoa hot, you can also enjoy it cold. Or, if you want to make a big batch for the week, you can warm it up again on the stove by just adding a splash of milk.

This quinoa breakfast bowl can be easily adapted to incorporate other fruit flavors. Simply swap strawberries for favorites like peaches, blueberries, or bananas.

This recipe is both gluten-free and dairy-free, so it fits with most diets.

Enjoy!
