1/2 cup (125 ml) each quinoa and large flake oats, dry
2 1/2 cups (625 ml) water, cold
1/4 tsp (1.25 ml) cinnamon, ground
1/2 cup (125 ml) frozen blueberries
1/2 cup (125 ml) frozen cranberries
1/4 cup (60 ml) walnuts
Other optional additions of your choice include flax, sesame or sunflower seeds, nuts, chopped fruit or berries etc. Sweeten to taste with Maple Syrup or your favourite sweetener.
2. Scatter frozen fruit and walnuts over top. Here I am using frozen cranberries and blueberries.
3. Turn rice cooker on and walk away leaving it to work its magic. The rice cooker will switch to warm when it is ready.
Remove from heat and portion into serving dishes. Serve with maple sugar or syrup if desired.
