Wicklewood's Cinnamon and Apple Quinoa

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by WicklewoodWench

If you choose to omit the butter and substitute artificial sweetener for sugar, this will be an incredibly healthy dish. I have also made this with half applesauce and half water when I have ran out of apple juice. I always use Dayla's Copycat Pampered Chef Cinnamon Plus Mix Baking Spice - Copycat Pampered Chef Cinnamon Plus Mix, but ordinary cinnamon works just as well.

Top Review by UmmBinat

5 stars in taste, very sweet, but it did not cook properly with the top off and was not 100% done. I would like to try this delicious tasting quinoa again covering the pot while cooking it and I think the result will be 5 stars. I used white quinoa, apple cider instead of apple juice, liquid local honey instead of sugar to be healthier, Mackintosh apple which I peeled as it was not organic, recipe#178187 made in applesauce format, plus the raisins and cinnamon, no optional butter to be dairy free and healthier! I will make this again!
