"Wake up in the morning and breakfast is served, the house smells like heaven. This is my new comfort food. Play with different types of seasonal fruits (peaches, apples, raisins, cranberries, etc.). Sprinkle chopped nuts or granola on the top to give it a little crunch." — erikafromamerica

LOTS of potential with this one. I'll do it again with other berries, other added ingredients, nuts, etc. Needed a bit more sweet for my taste.
I made substituions of sweetened vanilla coconut milk instead of soy, added vanilla, and used mixed berries (black, blue, rasp, and straw). It was incredibly lacking in taste and sweetness. I added stevia to my bowl and that helped. I think the ratio of quinoa and chia to flavorings is off. I'd use either a far less amount of the seeds or a much much greater amount of berries, honey, and whatever to give this a little more punch. As for my house smelling like heaven, well, I couldn't smell anything until I got near the crockpot and it smelled very earthy - not like warm vanilla and berrie porridge. Again, a ratio thing, probably. has potential, but certainly not as as posted here.
I am cooking this as we speak . when you team two wonderful foods together with fruit and honey :))when you play with a recipe and make it your own!! simple and a new staple for my family :)) Thanks Erica
It's a little bland by itself, just like oatmeal I guess! But with brown sugar, it was just fine. Different and full of texture. I like it but my friend found it too bland.
This recipe has potential, but like the other comments, it lacks sweetness. I'll try again with different (sweeter) fruit.
