So I saw this post when I was looking up ideas for the quinoa flakes I bought for another recipe and I thought I might as well try it too.
I was feeling a little chilly and decided now was the perfect time!
Using my that recipe as inspiration I came up with a version that has no added egg or sugary stuff.
Banana Cocoa Quinoa Flake Bake
1 small banana, mashed
1/2 tsp cocoa powder
1 Tbsp ground flax mixed with 2 Tbsp water
1/2 cup quinoa flakes
I mixed everything together and put it into two little ramekins. I microwaved them for 3.5 mins because I didn’t want to bake them in the over for 20 mins…no time!!
I’m munching on them now and they’re pretty good. Kind of like a banana bread/brownie fix with no guilt. I flipped them out of the ramekins and let them sit a bit to “dry up” and they’re good.
I think it would be worth making a larger batch and baking it in the over though. It might be more muffin like and have less moisture but over all it’s pretty good.
I probably would still prefer a smoothie for breakfast because I can cram more goodness into one smoothie than I can with these but for something different I’ll keep these gems in mind.
Have you ever tried anything like this? I guess this would be the equivalent to those muffins in a mug scenarios but since there’s no baking powder I wouldn’t attempt to make these in a mug!
