Oats, Quinoa and Fruit

Oats, Quinoa, and Fruit

This recipe is great for you if you are:

  • trying to include more whole grains into your diet

  • are always running short on time in the morning and would like a warm breakfast to be ready for you when you wake up

  • would like to find another way to eat quinoa

  • would like to do something a bit different with your oatmeal

The one caveat about the crock pot and this recipe is that if it cooks too long it can get a bit crusty around the edges and or mushy in the middle. So if you will not be able to get back to it in 7 hours or so, try the stovetop version. I have included stovetop and crockpot directions for your convenience. Either way, this is a great way to start the day and is so good when you add is (just about any!) fruit. I have made it with peaches and blueberries several times this summer and it is delicious!
