1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/8 tsp. ground cloves
2 apples, peeled and diced
1/3 c. raisins
2 c. milk

Preheat the oven to 350 F.
Lightly grease an 8x8 inch baking dish. Set aside.
In a small bowl, mix the quinoa and the spices. Pour into greased dish.
Sprinkle the apple and raisins on top of the quinoa.
In a small bowl, beat the eggs. Whisk in the milk and syrup.
Pour the egg mixture over the top of the fruit and quinoa. Lightly stir to make sure the fruit is partially submerged.
Sprinkle the almonds on top.
Bake for 55 minutes or until the casserole is mostly set with only a small amount of liquid left.
Allow to cool, then cover and refrigerate. In the morning, cut a slice, microwave, and enjoy!
