  • 1 cup quinoa, rinsed
  • 1 cup steel-cut oats
  • 4 cups water
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 cup brown sugar, plus 2 tablespoons for sprinkling
  • 2 tablespoons cinnamon
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon unsalted butter
  • Milk or cream and fresh berries, for serving

How to make this recipe

  1. Bring the quinoa, oats, 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt and water to a rolling boil in a large pot. Reduce heat, add the cinnamon and 1 cup brown sugar, and stir. Let the mixture simmer for 10 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Once the water is absorbed into the grains, remove from heat, and let cool for 10 minutes.

  2. Preheat oven to 350º. Butter an 8-by-8-inch or 11-by-7-inch baking dish and set aside. Lightly beat 2 eggs, then slowly add them to quinoa and oats mixture, stirring constantly. Add the baking powder and mix well. Transfer the mixture to the baking dish, and sprinkle 2 tablespoons brown sugar on top. Bake, uncovered, 25 to 35 minutes or until bubbly and brown on top. Let sit for 5 to 10 minutes, then serve with fresh fruit and milk or cream.

Make Ahead

The quinoa and steel-cut oats can be made a day ahead and refrigerated. Add eggs and baking powder before baking.
