5 Minute Banana Chocolate Chip Quinoa Flake Bake

By October 5, 2017

It’s baaaaack…. The breakfast that I was head over heals in love with last summer is making a major come back. Quinoa flake bakes are the king of all quinoa flake recipes. They’re a breakfast cake, a protein monster, can be made vegan, are loaded with fiber, and contribute over 15% of your RDA of iron. Not to mention, they’re fabulous as training fuel when preparing for a marathon or other high endurance activity. If you have a bag of lonely quinoa flakes in the back of your pantry that you haven’t put to good use you owe it to yourself to try one of these bakes. They’re so good and easy, too! … and this one has chocolate. You just cannot go wrong!

The perfect 5 minute breakfast that’s high in protein, fiber… and chocolate.
  1. Prepare a 16oz. microwave/oven safe dish by oiling with a dab of coconut oil. Set aside. Drop all ingredients in a small bowl and mix until fully incorporated. Press mixture into prepare dish and even out with fork.
  2. Microwave option: Place in the microwave and cook for 2.5 minutes. You’ll know when it’s done when it rises slightly, is harder to the touch, and pulls away from the sides of the dish. Don’t bake it too long, or you’ll have a chocolate Frisbee!
  3. Oven option: Place in a preheated oven at 350F and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  4. Allow to rest for 1 minute before tipping over onto a plate and smothering with your favorite toppings.
Feel free to use 1 egg in place of egg whites. To keep vegan, use ¼ cup apple sauce.
Have a fabulous weekend, everyone!
