Apple Pecan Cinnamon Breakfast Quinoa


1 cup pre-rinsed quinoa

1¾ cups 1% low-fat milk

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1/3 cup chopped pecans

1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce

Add quinoa and milk to a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally.

Enjoy immediately or refrigerate in tightly covered container. Microwave servings when ready to enjoy.
