Cinnamon Quinoa Breakfast Bars

I’m usually not a breakfast person.

Except on the weekends.. I’m all about eggs & bacon!
But alas I’m usually rushing out the door for work on the weekdays… and two cups of coffee later Im starving.

So I’m trying to get better and bring breakfast with me. I usually cook quinoa a couple nights a week, and we have so much leftover. So I decided to whip up a healthy on the go breakfast.

Wisk all the wet ingredients together.

Next add your dry ingredients, and mix together. It looks delicious huh?! (sarcasm.. here)
I also added a couple of handfuls of chopped walnuts.. it just needed a little extra something.

Pour your quinoa mixture into a casserole dish. I used a 9×9 glass dish. And sprinkle with a little more cinnamon. Then bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes.

Once your quinoa is cooked.. let it cool then slice it into bars. You can eat them immediatly or wrap them up and store in the fridge for a quick breakfast on the go! Super easy & delicious!

    These look super delish! Have you or else tried using protein (whey) powder in this recipe?

    Could this be a good sub for a meal on the Live Fit plan?

      yes absolutely. I eat this in the morning for breakfast.. I would tweak the recipe to fit the Live Fit ingredients 🙂 Like probably egg whites & almond milk.
