Chewsday Tuesday – Apple Cinnamon Quinoa Bake


Apple cinnamon quinoa bake

What you need:

  • 1 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 2 apples, peeled, diced
  • 1/4 cup raisins ( I didn’t have any, so I used a mixed berry blend)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups vanilla soy milk (can substitute regular milk)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup almonds, chopped

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a 7×11-inch baking dish an 8×8 works too.  I used a 7×11 and wish that I’d done the 8×8 because then the bars would have been thicker.

In a small bowl, mix the uncooked quinoa with the spices. Pour into greased dish.

Sprinkle the apple and raisins on top of the quinoa.

In that same small bowl, beat the eggs. Whisk in the soy milk and maple syrup.
Pour the egg and milk mixture over the top of the fruit and quinoa.

Lightly stir to partially submerge the fruit. Sprinkle the chopped almonds on top.
Bake for one hour or until the casserole is mostly set with only a small amount of liquid left.


Allow to cool, and then cover and refrigerate. When you are ready to enjoy cut a square, microwave it on a plate for about 30 seconds, and enjoy alone or with a few dollops of Greek yogurt.
