  1. Place rinsed kaniwa, milk, and cinnamon in a large saucepan or dutch oven and bring mixture to a boil.
  2. Reduce to a simmer, place a lid on the saucepan and simmer for 20-25 minutes. If the mixture starts bubbling too much, place the lid ajar and cook that way. You’ll know it’s done once the kaniwa is soft and has absorbed most of the milk. At this time, you should remove it from the heat.
  3. Stir in coconut oil, maple syrup, and salt.
  4. Spoon into bowls and serve with chia seeds, almonds, berries, and maybe a little extra milk over top.
