If you like your breakfast bowl with a ton of color, this recipe will absolutely deliver.

Topped with tomatoes, avocado, kale, and a hard-boiled egg, this bowl is packed with color and flavor.

What makes it extra special is that it’s infused with everything bagel seasoning, which gives it a nice salty and savory flavor.

With this dish, it’s like you’re eating a quinoa bowl and a bagel at the same time.

4. Dark Chocolate Quinoa Breakfast Bowl

A day that starts with chocolate is always a good day.

That said, I can’t think of a better way to kick off my mornings than with this dark chocolate breakfast bowl.

Aside from the chocolate, this recipe also flavors quinoa with almond milk, coconut milk, and maple syrup.

Together, the ingredients transform the quinoa into a creamy and decadent chocolate porridge.

5. Southwest Quinoa Breakfast Bowl

Another great thing about quinoa is it’s so versatile. You can flavor it with anything and it’ll still taste amazing.

For instance, if you cook the grains in cloves, cumin, coriander, and paprika, you’ll get quinoa with a southwestern twist.

Throw in black beans, cherry tomatoes, corn, avocado, and soft-boiled eggs for an incredibly hearty and scrumptious breakfast bowl.

6. Blueberry Quinoa Breakfast Bowl

This next bowl isn’t just quinoa topped with blueberries. This recipe takes the concept to the next level and cooks the quinoa and berries together!

This fun twist doesn’t just give the quinoa a burst of berry flavor, but also turns it blue.

Bananas are also added to the pot for sweetness and garnished with pecans for a nice crunch.

7. Very Berry Quinoa Breakfast Bowl

This quinoa bowl is topped with banana slices, berries, hemp seeds, and almonds. Peanut butter gives it a little extra oomph.

But of course, feel free to make it your own!

Choose whatever fruits and berries are in season, and pick whatever nut butter you’re in the mood for.

You can also sweeten the whole thing with maple syrup, and heighten its flavor with a splash of vanilla.

8. Quinoa Avocado Breakfast Bowl

Here’s another hearty bowl your savory tooth will surely go gaga over! 

Quinoa is seasoned with salt and pepper, as well as rosemary for an earthy flavor.

It’s topped with runny, soft-boiled eggs, avocado, tomatoes, and a sprinkling of crumbled feta.

This bowl is the perfect balance of salty, savory, creamy, and earthy.

9. Kale and Eggs Quinoa Bowl

Anything with bacon in it is already a sure hit in my household.

If your family loves bacon with everything, I’m sure they’ll fall for this quinoa bowl.

This quinoa is particularly noteworthy because it’s cooked in Greek yogurt and whisked eggs.

Thanks to this mixture, the quinoa gets wonderfully thick and creamy.

And of course, let’s not forget about the bacon.

Crumbles are thrown into the mix, and you get crunchy and salty bacon in every bite.

10. Greek Quinoa Breakfast Bowl

If you’re in the mood for something different, how about giving your quinoa bowl a Greek flair?

Don’t worry, you don’t need to hunt down a bunch of unfamiliar ingredients to make it happen.

All you need here are Greek yogurt, spinach, tomatoes, eggs, and feta.

Together, they give the quinoa both umami-rich and refreshing flavors

11. Crispy Quinoa Breakfast Bowls

Instead of fluffy quinoa, this recipe makes the grains crispy. If you’ve never had crispy quinoa before, this is absolutely a must-try. 

It’s not that hard. You just cook the quinoa according to package instructions and then pan-fry it with olive oil until crispy.

Next, you spoon the quinoa into a bowl and top it with sweet potatoes, mushrooms, tomatoes, radishes, spinach, and a poached egg.

12. Chunky Monkey Quinoa Breakfast Bowl

If you’re a fan of Ben and Jerry’s Chunky Monkey, I have great news for you. 

You can incorporate the same flavor profile into your quinoa bowl!

Simply cook the quinoa with milk, mashed bananas, cocoa powder, and maple syrup.

From the base alone, this bowl already screams chunky monkey.

Then, it’s just a matter of topping it. To get that signature flavor profile, go for peanut butter, dark chocolate, and more bananas.

13. Fruit and Yogurt Quinoa Cereal Breakfast Bowls

I love how this breakfast bowl tastes just like fro-yo!

If you’re a fan of the snack, too, then I’m sure this recipe will make your tastebuds happy.

There’s a merry mix of quinoa, yogurt, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, and your choice of nuts and seeds. This bowl is so light and refreshing.

14. Quinoa Breakfast Bowl With Caramelized Bananas

If you’re looking for a decadent yet healthy breakfast, you can’t go wrong with caramelized bananas.

I mean, even on their own, caramelized bananas are already such a treat.

Add them to quinoa, along with cinnamon, maple syrup, and chocolate chips, to transform your breakfast from simple to spectacular.

15. Creamy Vegan Pumpkin Quinoa Breakfast

Calling all my vegan friends! If you’re looking for another healthy breakfast to add to your weekly rotation, this one is for you.
