Get Fancy With Your Breakfast (Recipe Inside)


Bowl of oatmeal with berries.

Normally I share healthy, quick, and easy recipes, and while this one is definitely HEALTHY and EASY — it does take a little prep time.


Don’t worry, though! The payoff is a creamy, delicious, filling, and comforting breakfast that you can whip up with very little effort…


So if you love a nice, warm treat in the morning, it’s totally worth it.


Here’s how it works: Prep the mix in advance, and about 20-30 minutes before your next breakfast, scoop out a serving, add liquid, and cook!


Once you master the basic recipe you can experiment by adding different fruits, grains, and spices. I focused on holiday flavors and colors for this version. :)


Chia-Quinoa Morning Mix

(12 servings)


● 3 cups (240 g) rolled oats

● 1 cup (180 g) quinoa

● 1 cup (160 g) dried cranberries or cherries

● ½ cup (90 g) hemp, flax, or chia seeds (or a combo!)

● 1 tsp cinnamon (or pumpkin pie spice mix!)

● ¾ tsp sea salt

● Optional: maple syrup, Greek yogurt and/or shelled pistachios (as topping)


To make the mix, combine all of the ingredients EXCEPT the optional maple syrup, yogurt and/or pistachios, and place in a sealed airtight container.


To prepare 1 serving: In a small saucepan, stir together 10 oz of liquid (water or milk) and ⅓ cup of the mix.


Bring to a boil over medium-high. Lower the heat to a simmer and partially cover the pan, stirring occasionally. Cook until thick, 20-30 minutes. Cover the pan completely and let stand for 5 minutes. Spoon into a serving bowl and add optional toppings and sweetener.


Serve and enjoy!
