Chocolate Quinoa Breakfast Bowl

Chocolate quinoa breakfast bowl? Does that sound odd to you? Don’t worry, it sounded a little weird to me too. When I think of quinoa, savory comes to my mind. But I love experimenting with food and love trying out new things. This recipe is perfect, since I’m currently trying to avoid gluten for 3 weeks, to see if I’m sensitive to it or not. Even if you’re not trying to avoid gluten, this recipe is still a great alternative to your typical morning oatmeal.

I know many people don’t think of sweet or breakfast when they think of quinoa, but this chocolate quinoa breakfast bowl is amazingly delicious. It makes for a great satisfying and energizing meal, that’ll keep you full through your morning. The nice thing about it is that it literally takes such little time to prepare. You can cook the quinoa in big bathes and store it in the fridge. You can also make your own plant-based milk which will last in the fridge for days as well. All you have to do in the morning is warm up the quinoa and milk and throw in your favorite toppings. What a convenient and quick breakfast! This might be my breakfast for the next 3 weeks! You can always change the toppings to make it different each day.

This recipe is full of protein, healthy carbs and fats. Everything you need for a great meal. It’s  gluten free and you can make it vegan friendly by using maple syrup instead of honey. There are no processed food ingredients in here. Only real foods! And it’s sweetened naturally with organic raw honey and bananas. No refined sugars.

Enjoy!
