Chocolate & Peanut Butter Breakfast Quinoa

Submitted by: MACWOLF01
Chocolate & Peanut Butter Breakfast Quinoa

Introduction

If you've never had quinoa for breakfast, now is the time to try it! This bowl of peanut-buttery goodness is as comforting as traditional oatmeal. We love adding dried fruit and nuts for extra texture and flavor. If you've never had quinoa for breakfast, now is the time to try it!

Number of Servings: 2

Ingredients

    1/2 cup dry quinoa, rinsed
    1 cup chocolate almond milk
    1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1 dash cinnamon
    1/2 tablespoon maple syrup or agave syrup
    1 tablespoon of natural organic peanut butter
    1 teaspoon of cocoa powder
    1 tablespoon chopped nuts of choice (optional)

Directions

Bring the quinoa, milk, vanilla, cinnamon and syrup to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until tender, about 15 minutes.

Mix in the peanut butter and cocoa powder until all mixed together and warmed up again.

Remove from heat and add nuts if you wish. I put into 2 x 125ml mason jars to store or eat at work.

Serving Size: Makes 2 x 125ml (1/2cup) or 1 250ml (1 cup) servings

  • I made a few changes and it was still good: coconut milk and water instead of almond, stevia instead of syrup, Barlean's Greens chocolate instead of cocoa, and then I added some chia seeds because I had it too watery. Delish change from steel cut oats! Next time I'll smash in my banana. - 11/24/13
