I love baked oatmeal. Don’t you?
But if you’re sensitive to oats; as I’ve recently discovered I am, having that rich and delicious bowl of baked oatmeal may not sooth your insides the way it’s supposed to. Darn that oatmeal, eh?
Lucky for us, quinoa is your gluten-free best bud when it comes to replacing the bowl of oats that you may or may not have become quite fond of over the years. Or, maybe you can eat oats a plenty but you’re looking to switch things up to keep life interesting…
Try quinoa, you’ll like it :D
inspired by my Pumpkin Quinoa Breakfast Casserole.

Instead of melted coconut oil, I used my new organic butter infused olive oil from DanaShortt Gourmet that Angela and I picked up on the weekend. This stuff taste like the real thing… but it’s vegan, gluten-free and 100% amazing!
The recipe calls for 1 cup of chopped apples which; if your apples were a bit on the tiny side like mine were, means you’ll need 1.5 apples. Guess what I did with the 1/2 apple?
Coated it in almond butter and a sprinkle of cinnamon, of course!
I’m sure that you could use other grains in this recipe, too. In fact, as I just typed that last sentence… I remembered actually trying (and posting) this recipe a year and a half ago. Shoot! Well, if you’re curious to know how to make this with millet and amaranth, check this out.
Let’s go with… I meant to do that!
The apple mixture should look like this once it’s cooked for about 30 minutes. The quinoa will be soft, liquid absorbed and it’ll be smelling up your kitchen something fierce.
Lay the topping on and throw it back in the oven!
Watch closely so that the top doesn’t burn. It’ll change in an instant!
