Banana Bread Quinoa (Serves 2)
1/2 Cup quinoa
1/4 Cup light coconut milk
1/4 Cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/2 Cup water
1/4 Teaspoon vanilla extract (not imitation!)
1 Overripe banana
2 Tablespoons chopped walnuts
4 Packets Truvia/Stevia
In a bowl, mash the banana. Add the banana, along with the rest of the ingredients, to the slow cooker, mixing thoroughly. Cook on high for 1 hour. Serve with additional chopped walnuts or banana slices if desired. Enjoy!
This recipe truly does taste like eating a bowl of warm, fresh, moist banana bread. Delicious! I served this with some egg whites on the side, to ensure adequate protein intake for breakfast. This dish was an absolute hit in my house!
On a side note--- this is my backpack. They really don't call me "Muddy Melissa" for nothing! Hehehe! I've got physical therapy again today, but, to be honest, even after my long run yesterday--- I'm feeling great! I think I'm finally (pun 100% intended!) back on my feet! Woohoo!
