Quinoa Baked French Toast Breakfast Recipe

Quinoa is a staple in many diets today whether you are vegan / vegetarian or a carnivore.  Since it is not a grain it fits into the No Sugar, No Grain lifestyle but unfortunately it is not Paleo based on what I read.  That being said you can make your own choices on what you want to put into your body and I for one will choose to consume quinoa.

I was inspired to get quinoa back into my diet after reading this article from Food Republic that showed 10 different things you didn’t know about quinoa.  With this article in mind I made extra quinoa for this baked french toast recipe.  As it turned out I am beyond happy that I did so and now have a base for making this meal the night before and then re-heating for post workout recovery meals.  This is also a beginner’s recipe so feel free to add fruit and honey to it.  Essentially treat this as any french toast breakfast you would make.

Here is the recipe for the Quinoa Baked French Toast that I so thoroughly enjoyed on Tuesday morning.  Please note that this recipe is for twice as much quinoa as you are going to use for the breakfast recipe, but it is difficult to get quinoa correct with only 1/4c dry.  Make 1/2c and then use 1/2 for dinner like in this photo and then use the remaining for the french toast.

Recipe Of The Week.0014 150x150 Quinoa Baked French Toast Breakfast Recipe

Quinoa is a superfood that is a terrific addition to your diet. This recipe is simple but the taste is anything but.



  1. In a pot add the quinoa and toast the quinoa for a couple of minutes. Add the water and bring to a boil then lower heat and simmer for 20-25 minutes until all the water is absorbed and quinoa can be fluffed with a fork.
  2. In a separate bowl combine the egg and non-dairy milk with cinnamon to your taste.
  3. Portion out the quinoa so that you have 1/2 for one meal and the other 1/2 for this recipe. Place the quinoa for this recipe into an oven-proof baking dish. Pour the custard over the top of the quinoa.
  4. Add the 2 Tbsp of carob chips to the quinoa and combine well. Tap the baking dish on the counter to remove all the air bubbles.
  5. Cover and place in fridge for at least an hour. I left mine in the fridge overnight to really set up.
  6. Pre-heat oven to 400* when you are ready to bake the meal. Place in oven and bake for 30 minutes or until the meal has set and is no longer able to be jiggled when you shake it.
  7. Remove from oven and sprinkle extra cinnamon on top and enjoy!

      You are welcome my friend. I am about half-way through VB6 and he talks about grains being used as breakfast items and it has opened my world a bit. Instead of the plain quinoa porridge I figured this would be worth a go and as it turns out it was.
