DIY MORNING BOWL MIX RECIPE

Here’s how it works: Prep the mix in advance, and about 20-30 minutes before your next breakfast, scoop out a serving, add liquid, and cook!

Once you master the basic recipe you can experiment by adding different fruits, grains, and spices. I focused on holiday flavors and colors for this version. 🙂 

Chia-Quinoa Morning Mix

(12 servings)

  • 3 cups (240 g) rolled oats
  • 1 cup (180 g) quinoa
  • 1 cup (160 g) dried cranberries or cherries
  • ½ cup (90 g) hemp, flax, or chia seeds (or a combo!)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon (or pumpkin pie spice mix!)
  • ¾ tsp sea salt
  • Optional: maple syrup, Greek yogurt and/or shelled pistachios (as topping)

To make the mix, combine all of the ingredients EXCEPT the optional maple syrup, yogurt and/or pistachios, and place in a sealed airtight container.

To prepare 1 serving: In a small saucepan, stir together 10 oz (295 ml) of liquid (water or milk) and ⅓ cup (5½ Tbsp) of the mix.

Bring to a boil over medium-high. Lower the heat to a simmer and partially cover the pan, stirring occasionally. Cook until thick, 20-30 minutes. Cover the pan completely and let stand for 5 minutes. Spoon into a serving bowl and add optional toppings and sweetener.

Serve and enjoy!
