Heavenly Breakfast Quinoa

What you need: 

1/2 small banana
2 teaspoons peanut butter
1/2 cup quinoa, cooked
1 tablespoon flax seeds, ground
few splashes nondairy milk (I use soy)

What you do: 

1. Mash the banana right in your breakfast bowl with a fork and then stir in the peanut butter.
2. Stir in the quinoa and flax seeds and then add milk, to taste.
This can be eaten cold or hot. I make up a pot of quinoa at the beginning of the week and I get excited about eating this for breakfast every day. Nothing like a little fiber, protein, whole grain start to a day!

I absolutely love this recipe even though I don't like bananas or peanut butter. I added a teaspoon of jam and it was truly AMAZING!

This is now my favorite breakfast.  I am using crunchy peanut butter and almond milk and a bit more quinoa.  I like that I make one batch of quinoa and get 4 breakfasts out of it.  I love banana's and peanut butter together anyway and with the quinoa and almond milk it turns so creamy and yummy once I heat it up.  Totaled up the calories (around 375 for my mix) and was delighted to see that this is really healthy and I stay full for quite a long time.

It's really good but for some reason I get a mustard aftertaste. Maybe it's the age of banana or brand of peanut butter I used.

Did you rinse the quinoa? It has an aftertaste when it's not rinsed.

I liked this. Not my favorite but it was good. I'de have to say the same as Godot. The peanut butter didn't make much sence to my taist buds. And to much protein with the two mixxed together. But I'll try this again with other stuff.  ;)
