Prep Time:

Serves:

1

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup quinoa flakes
  • 1/4 cup mango puree [about 1/2 of a fresh mango]
  • 1 egg – see note
  • 1/4 banana, diced
  • 2 tablespoon dried papaya, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1/8 teaspoon almond extract

Instructions

  1. Prepare a 16oz. microwave safe dish by oiling with a dab of coconut oil. Set aside. Place all ingredients in a small bowl and mix until fully incorporated. Press mixture into prepared dish and even out with fork.
  2. Microwave option: Place in the microwave and cook for 3 1/2 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 Frisbee!
  3. Oven option: Place in a preheated oven at 350F and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Notes

to make vegan, omit egg and add 1/4 cup of extra mango puree.
