Pretty bland. I definitely recommend adding a bit of sweetener.

We made this for breakfast after our weekend run. I had a cup of cooked quinoa left over from earlier in the week, so I cooked up 1/3c oats in 2/3 c water with half a chopped apple for each of us, then added 1/2 cup cooked quinoa. Spiced it up with some cinnamon, honey, dried chopped figs and fresh blueberries, plus a splash of milk. Will do this more often!

This is a great hearty and healthy breakfast treat! I halved the recipe and it made more than enough for a breakfast for one. I served with a little brown sugar and that sweet touch was great with the nutty quinoa. Thanks for sharing your recipe!
