Instructions
  1. In a saucepan over medium heat add pecans, coconut oil, cinnamon and salt to the pot. While stirring constantly, cook until the cinnamon is fragrant, about 15 seconds.
  2. Add the quinoa to the pot and stir to combine. Cook, while stirring constantly, just until the quinoa is warmed through, about a minute or so. Remove the pan from heat and stir in the maple syrup.
  3. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and top with dried fruit and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Serve promptly, with additional maple syrup and milk or yogurt on the side, if you would like.
