REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
I omitted the raisins (don't like them) but followed the recipe otherwise and it was very good. I'm trying to eat healthier grains for breakfast but find so many of them are flavorless. This one was delicious.

I had leftover quinoa from the night before and simmered it in vanilla soy milk. The apples, honey, raisins and cinnamon added tons of flavor; absolutely delicious

For this recipe I didnt use raisins. But I personlized it everyday. It is really good if u add some walnuts and alomonds. And if u are like me and you cant have milk or dairy, just add honey and it is absolutely the most delicious thing I ever tasted. Plus it suits my diet. No wheat, dairy, citrus, or oats. I definitely reccomend this.

Nice alternative to oatmeal. Did not have apples/raisins. Used dried blueberries and a mixture of dried cherries/strawberries in place of the apples/raisins. Great way to start a subzero morning.
