No time for breakfast? This 5 minutes hot quinoa cereal is for you!

Want a hot and healthy breakfast in 5-minutes? Well, here you go, this quinoa cereal takes 5 minutes from start to finish and will leave you feeling healthy and satisfied!

This cereal is kind of bland on its own, but top it off with a large spoonful of your favorite nut butter or maple syrup, some fresh seasonal fruit, and this cereal goes from bland to “wow,” all in an instant.

Hot Quinoa Cereal

If you top it with peanut butter and berries you don’t even need honey or maple syrup.  The peanut butter adds amazing flavor to the quinoa, and it melts into the cereal making it taste like a peanut butter sandwich. YUM! Come on, doesn’t that bowl of cereal look amazing?

You can use water here, but you can rise the nutritional value and flavor by adding almond milk (which is vegan and dairy free). 

The milk also helps to make the cereal a bit creamier.  You could keep the cereal as is with just the milk, or add in some dried blueberries or cranberries in lieu of the goji berries. Ok, set your timer and let’s make some cereal!

Quinoa Flakes


  1. In a small to medium sized saucepan set over medium-high heat, bring the almond milk to a boil.
  2. When the milk comes to a boil, add in the ⅓ cup quinoa flakes, the ¼ cup goji berries (or dried blueberries) and a pinch of salt, turn off the heat and give the cereal a stir.
  3. Let the cereal sit for 3 minutes, (set your timer here) to allow the quinoa flakes to cook through.
  4. Give the cereal and give it a final stir. It will be a lot thicker and creamier.
  5. Ladle the cereal into a bowl and top with your favorite toppings! I love topping my cereal with fresh fruit in the summer, like strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, peaches, mango, you name it! I always blend in a big spoonful of peanut butter though! Amazing!
