Here’s a quick, easy, and healthy way to warm up in the morning: Use leftover cooked grains like quinoa or millet as the base for a delicious breakfast. Once they're done simmering in milk (or your favorite alt-milk) with maple syrup, and cinnamon, simply spoon into bowls and top with sweet sliced banana and crunchy cocoa nibs.


  • 2 cups cooked millet or quinoa

  • 1 cup milk (or alt milk)

  • Pinch kosher salt

  • 1 to 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup, plus more for serving

  • Pinch ground cinnamon

  • Sliced banana and cocoa nibs, for serving


  1. Combine grains, milk, 1 cup water, and salt in a pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium and simmer, stirring, until creamy, 15 to 18 minutes. Stir in maple syrup and a generous pinch of ground cinnamon. Top with sliced banana, cocoa nibs, and more maple syrup before serving.
