Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup dry quinoa 57g
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tbsp coconut oil 7g
  • dash of salt
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp truvia or more to taste
  • 20 g raisins ~2 tbsp
  • 5 g unsweetened desiccated coconut ~1 tbsp
  • 1 ounce chopped pecans 1-2 tbsp chopped
  • 1-2 tbsp sugar free maple syrup I recommend ChocZero Sugar Free Maple Syrup

Instructions

  • In a small pot, combine quinoa, water and 1/4 tsp salt.
  • Cover and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce to low and simmer for 15 minutes or until quinoa absorbs all water and is fluffy.
  • At this point, keep the heat on and stir in your additional dash of salt, coconut oil, sweetener, vanilla & cinnamon to taste.
  • Then add in your pecans, coconut and raisins. Stir and spoon into a serving bowl.
  • Enjoy hot with a drizzle of syrup (I like to keep the syrup beside me and add a little at a time as I eat, stirring to combine it.)
