Chocolate Banana Breakfast Quinoa with Walnuts by


1/3 cup quinoa;
2/3 cup almond milk and 1/3 cup water;
1 banana;
1 tbsp cocoa powder;
A few shakes of cinnamon or a cinnamon stick;
1 tbsp walnuts, chopped;
1 date or a few raisins, or a few dried cranberries.


-In a saucepan, bring the quinoa, liquid and cinnamon to a boil, turning down to a low heat and allowing to simmer. Finely dice the date and throw in, giving a stir, then do not stir the quinoa again. (Or just throw in the raisins/cranberries.)

-Mash the banana and cocoa powder in a bowl, until smooth. (I added some flax and a little almond milk here for a nutritional boost, but this is optional.)

-Once the quinoa is almost done - slightly sticky rather than dry and fluffy - pour the chocolate/banana mix in to the pan and stir until combined. Add a dash of almond milk if too dry. Pour in to your bowl, top with walnuts and enjoy!
