Toasted Coconut & Almond Quinoa Oatmeal

October 26, 2015 by MommaCuisine

My kids absolutely love oatmeal for breakfast. In fact, I make it for them at least 3 times a week. When I was thinking of quinoa recipes, I thought of simply adding it to my kids oatmeal to add extra protein without them really noticing or changing the texture profile too much. I dug in myself and I must say, it’s pretty darn good!
