Quinoa made easy – this can almost feel like an apple cobbler if you use your imagination! 



1 cup water

1/4 cup quinoa, rinsed well

1/4 cup applesauce

1 tablespoon honey

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 cup sliced almonds

1 tablespoon brown sugar Splenda

1 tablespoon coconut oil, softened



  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. 
  2. In a small bowl, combine the first 6 ingredients.
  3. Spray a small baking dish with oil spray and transfer the ingredients. Cover and bake for 50 minutes. 
  4. In another small bowl, combine almonds, brown sugar Splenda, and coconut oil; sprinkle over quinoa mixture. Bake uncovered until lightly browned, 5-10 minutes longer. 
  5. Let stand 10 minutes before serving. 

Makes 1-2 servings depending on your plan. Count each serving as a breakfast, or as a starch by a meal (do not add a fat to the meal).
