  1. Rinse your kaniwa and then put it into a large saucepan or a Dutch oven with some milk and cinnamon. Get it boiling.
  2. Once it’s boiling, turn down the heat to a simmer, cover it up with a lid, and let it simmer for around 20-25 min. If it starts bubbling too much, you can leave the lid slightly open. You’ll know it’s ready when the kaniwa is soft and has soaked up most of the milk. Take it off the heat.
  3. Now, stir in some coconut oil, maple syrup, and a pinch of salt.
  4. Spoon it into bowls and get creative with your toppings. Chia seeds, almonds, berries, and maybe a drizzle of extra milk on top. Enjoy!
