Coffee Quinoa Recipe

Coffee Quinoa-5

Coffee + Quinoa

An odd + awesome combination. Add chocolate and the effect is that of a Mocha Latte!

Coffee Quinoa

For local flavor I used Slingshot‘s cold brew coffee made here in Raleigh, NC. Yellow Dog Bread Co. sells it, along with some incredible apple turnovers.

Coffee Quinoa-2

I have a hard time eating eggs for breakfast willingly. And oatmeal doesn’t exactly knock my socks off. So quinoa is a perfect protein filled substitution. Plus it’s more malleable flavor-wise to turn it into whatever you’re feeling at the moment.

Fruit quinoa? Easy. Savory quinoa? Done. Coffee quinoa? Yes please!

Credit goes to Fit Foodie Finds for this recipe’s inspiration. She has a bunch of other quinoa recipes attached to her version. (It’s on my agenda to try the quinoa cornbread + quinoa chili!)
