Quinoa is higher in protein than most whole grains, so it’s a great choice at breakfast. Here, I layer it with Greek yogurt and fruit for an out-of-the-box parfait.

  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes 1 serving
  • ½ cup cooked quinoa
  • 6 ounces nonfat plain Greek yogurt*
  • 1 small apple, cored and chopped
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon, plus extra for sprinkling on top

Layer half the quinoa mixed with 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon, half the yogurt, and half the apple in a bowl or glass. Repeat with the remaining quinoa, cinnamon, yogurt, and apple. Sprinkle additional cinnamon on top if desired.
