Hi friends. I hope you’re having a fabulous weekend! The weather today is chilly and overcast here in VA but luckily, that hasn’t put a damper on my weekend.
This morning’s breakfast was fabulous! I’ve been a big fan of quinoa flakes (and quinoa) for quite some time now so when I saw this Quinoa Flake Bake recipe on FitSugar I knew I needed to try it.
The recipe was posted by Leanne of Healthful Pursuit and if you haven’t had a chance to check out her blog, I’d highly recommend it. She has some amazing recipes and beautiful photos.
After I spotted this recipe I realized I didn’t have any apple sauce on hand. No problemo! I just changed things up a bit and made a banana quinoa flake bake with a few different ingredients.
PS – How cute are this mini bananas? Random fact – I’m a sucker for all things miniature.
Banana Quinoa Flake Bake
Inspired by the Healthful Pursuit’s 5 Minute Apple Quinoa Flake Bake
1/2 cup quinoa flakes (I used Ancient Harvest)
1/2 banana, sliced (or 1 mini banana)
1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 T plain Greek Yogurt
1/2 T of chia seeds
1 tsp ground cinnamon
4 drops of liquid stevia
Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and stir until everything is well incorporated.
Prepare a microwave safe bowl with non-stick spray (or use coconut oil to coat the bowl).
Place the mixture into the prepared bowl and use a spoon to even out the top.
Put the dish in the microwave and cook for about 3 1/2 minutes. It’s done once it rises and starts to pull away from the sides of the bowl.
Eat it straight from the bowl or…
