Making breakfast can be very time-consuming and if you're like me, you never know what to make.

I love oats. They are the perfect way to save time and fill your belly with delicious and healthy grains. Since oats are a complex carb, they'll keep you full and satiated longer without spiking your blood sugar levels.

This bowl of oats taste kind of like a blueberry pecan pie, but much much healthier! In this satisfying, on-the-go oats recipe, lightly spiced, crunchy pecans and sweet berries make this the perfect healthy breakfast. Short on time in the morning? Try this oats variation.

Quinoa Avocado Coconut Bowl

Let's talk quinoa.

Lately, I've been enjoying using this ancient grain as part of my breakfast. It's an excellent, protein-rich grain to start your mornings. Combining the protein power of quinoa with the protein power of Greek or Icelandic yogurt makes this healthy treat more filling. And, if you're an early riser that hits the gym for a grueling workout, this is one bowl that will keep you fueled.

To be very honest with you, when I was creating this recipe, I had no idea how these flavor combinations were going to turn out. Quinoa.. Yum! Avocado.. Yum! Coconut.. Yum! But all together? Luckily, it turned out to be a winning combo.

This Quinoa Avocado Coconut Bowl is happiness in a bowl with all sorts of yummy things. It's really easy to make, especially if you cook the dry quinoa the night before.

What You'll Need

1/2 cup dry quinoa, rinsed
¾ cup and ¼ cup unsweetened almond milk, divided
5.3 oz vanilla yogurt (I used Siggi’s Icelandic but you can also use Greek yogurt)

1/2 small avocado
1 tablespoon honey
1/4 cup raw cashews
dash of pink himalayan salt
Toppings: unsweetened coconut flakes and chopped pistachios
 

What You'll Need To Know

Cook quinoa according to package direction using almond milk (3/4 cup).

In a high-speed blender add: banana, avocado, honey, raw cashews, salt and 1/4 cup almond milk and blend together.

In a bowl or deep glass, add a layer quinoa, followed by a layer of yogurt, and a layer of banana-avocado mix.

You’ll want to split the quinoa into two bowls (I used stemless wine glasses), then divide the banana avocado mix between the two.

Divide the yogurt and top off the bowl, then add the coconut flakes, and chopped pistachios. This recipe makes 2 servings.
