  • 1 tsp Cinnamon

  • ½ tsp Nutmeg

  • 2 Apples, diced

  • 3 Eggs

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line a casserole dish with parchment paper and set aside.

  2. In a medium sized bowl, mix the quinoa, cinnamon, and nutmeg and pour into casserole dish. Spread diced apples on top.

  3. Using the same medium-sized bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, and maple syrup. Pour over the apples and quinoa, making sure the egg mixture spreads evenly and covers the apples.
