Easy Overnight Quinoa Breakfast Recipe

It doesn’t matter if you work outside the home or are a stay-at-home mom…it is always hard to find the time to take care of ourselves by eating healthy. I love anything that I can prepare in advance and the easier the better!

A while ago, I created a Simple Chia Seeds Overnight Oats Recipe. I love this recipe and eat it all the time. Being a vegetarian, I eat a lot of quinoa. I always seem to have leftover quinoa in the refrigerator so I thought…what if I substituted quinoa for the oats? I know the answer….A yummy breakfast!

  1. Sounds yummy, Lisa. I’m cleansing now but this is one I’ll try when I’m eating again. Hope you and the family are well! Miss you….

    1. Thanks for stopping by Bren! When I make quinoa, I often make a batch with “extra” so it would be perfect to use the cooked leftovers for a quick overnight breakfast like this. I don’t have a lot of quinoa experience though. Have you found other recipes where the quinoa can be uncooked in a breakfast recipe like this? I’d love to learn more!

      Best wishes,

    2. It’s my understanding that quinoa isn’t all that healthy if eaten raw. I don’t remember the exact reason, something to do with saponins, but if you want to know more, google it.
      I’ll be giving this a try soon, sounds yum to me.

      1. Thanks Michelle! This recipe uses cooked quinoa, not raw so you should be able to get all the healthy benefits for your breakfast. Hope you enjoy the recipe! Swing by again and let us know how it turns out.

        Best wishes,
        Carrie
