Calories 528 kcal
1 cup cooked quinoa
1 cup oats
1.5 – 2 cups almond milk
4 tablespoons chia seeds
2 tablespoons chopped almonds
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
Chopped almonds to garnish optional
Add all the ingredients (minus garnishes) to a mixing bowl, starting with 1.5 cups of almond milk.
Mix well and set aside for 10 minutes.
Allow the mixture to thicken. If the mixture is too thick, add some more almond milk to thin it out.
I ended up doing about 2 cups in total.
Transfer to your jars/bowls and garnish with desired toppings. I used blueberries and chopped almonds.
