Start your day with a protein-packed, calcium rich bowl of Banana Nut Quinoa Breakfast cereal and know that your morning will be fueled with nutrients you need to stay sharp, focused, and to start your day right!
For best results, soak quinoa in 1 cup water overnight. This step is not necessary, but helps create a softer, more porridge like consistency.
Blend together 2 cups milk, egg, vanilla, salt with 2 ripe bananas. Pour into large saucepan and stir in quinoa. Bring to a simmer over medium heat and cook for 15-20 minutes or until most of the liquid has been absorbed, stirring every few minutes. Stir in the chia seeds.
To serve: Dish out quinoa porridge into 4 bowls, add 1/2 cup milk to each bowl, 1/4 of the remaining banana sliced, and a tablespoon of the chopped walnuts. If you like things sweet, feel free to drizzle each bowl with a teaspoon of honey or maple syrup. I find the bananas make this dish sweet enough for me...
