This was excellent for breakfast! I am diabetic, so I only made one serving (1/4 cup dry quinoa). I used a serving of Ghiradelli semisweet chips instead of cocoa powder and agave.

I'm eating this now as a dessert (though I think it's much better suited for breakfast!). I had to add a bunch more syrup than in the recipe, but maybe that's just because I like it to be a little more soup-y. I also added more cocoa powder than mentioned & a generous helping of cinnamon.

Also, I used red quinoa instead of the regular stuff. (It has more protein & less fat, and the taste is a little bit heartier, too. Try it if you've never tried it before!) But I think this would be good with any grain... rice, couscous, oats, etc.

:)>>> i'M SO GLAD YOU LIKE IT!!!

I have it at least once a week. And bananas are pretty awesome with this too.
It's a grate little snack before or even after a really good workout. If you come up with any twists for this let me know. But I think its amazing the way it is.
