I used mostly coconut milk... pecans or walnuts, dates and coconut. cinnamon and some coconut sugar. most excellent, and keeps well refrigerated for the following day. rinsing the quinoa *well* several times is key to avoid bitterness.

I used natural creamy peanut butter instead and added 2 Tbsp brown sugar and it tasted pretty good.

Wonderful! Huge hit at my home. I leave out the peanut butter tho. And add cinnamon & cloves.

Easy to make! I subbed raisins for the prunes, but any dried fruit would have worked! Great hot cereal.

This is a healthy, tasty meal. I used whole milk, and added whole grain organic flax meal for fiber and more taste. Nutmeg make me sleepy so I used ground cloves instead. Yum! I have also made it using one apple and apple pie spice for flavor. Another yum!

Mine came out too sweet, but may have been the Dried plums I used since I didnt have prunes. Still ill cut the fruit in half and try again.
