Cinnamon Apple Brown Rice Bowl with Cranberries

Tired of the same old breakfast items? Me too! So I decided to invent my own rice bowl concoction.  This brown rice/quinoa mix only took about 25 minutes and was a delicious hot meal on a cold winter day.

Here's what you need:

1 cup brown rice/quinoa mix
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 c. chopped apple
1/4 cup coconut milk (optional)
1 c water
handful of dried cranberries
1 tbsp. sweetener of your choice. I use brown sugar or stevia.

Place all ingredients in rice cooker. Cover and let simmer till done. Voila! A whole grain hot breakfast with fruit, protein, and a bit of calcium.  Top with a dollop of plain vanilla yogurt for some calcium and protein. Try it and let me know what you think. Enjoy!
