Mike Witcher and Russell Biven make good on a bet by cooking Moira and Abby breakfast. WBIR

Ingredients:

  • 2/3 cup warm water
  • 1/3 cup brewed coffee, hot or warm
  • 2 tablespoons canned pumpkin puree (NOT pumpkin pie mix!)
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 cup raw quinoa

Topping

  • 1/2 cup raw pecans, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil

Instructions

  1. Prehead oven to 350 F.
  2. Add water, coffee, pumpkin puree, maple syrup, coconut oil, vanilla, and pumpkin pie spice to a 4-cup casserole dish. Stir to combine. Then add quinoa.
  3. Cover and bake for 45-50 minutes until most of the liquid is gone. There should still be some liquid left and the quinoa should be just about cooked.
  4. Meanwhile, add pecans, almond flour, maple syrup, coconut flour, cinnamon and salt to a small bowl. Mix to combine, then mix in coconut oil. Place the bowl in freezer until ready to use.
  5. Once casserole is complete, remove from oven, take off the cover and top with the crumbled topping. Return to oven, uncovered and bake 12-15 minutes until topping browns.

Prep time: 10 minutes
