9 Breakfast Quinoa Recipes That’ll Make You Forget All About Oatmeal

Cold mornings call for a warm, hearty, flavorful breakfast. But sometimes oats can feel too heavy, pancakes can seem too time intensive, and scrambled eggs just feel…  boring. Sure, we can pop some bread in the toaster and call it a day, but there’s a better option.

We rounded up nine healthy and easy recipes to get you started with your quinoa adventure, but it doesn’t have to stop there. Experiment with everything from bacon and cheese to nut butters and fruit—basically anything tastes good!
