Hot Chocolate Banana Breakfast Quinoa

Chocolate for breakfast? Oh yes, yes, yes! This is a really yummy alternative to oatmeal in the mornings, it gives you a quick chocolate fix too... and if you're like me I need atleast 3 chocolatey hits a day!

  • 3/4 cup quinoa
  • 1/4 cup gluten free oats
  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened vanilla soy/almond milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 banana
  • 2 tbsps cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp raisins

  1. Mash or puree the banana and set aside.
  2. Put the quinoa, milk, and water in a saucepan, bring to boil, then turn down to a low heat and simmer for 15 mins.
  3. Add the oats, and simmer for a further 10mins.
  4. Stir in the raisins, cocoa powder and pureed banana until fully combined.
  5. Spoon into a bowl, and serve warm. Yummy in your tummy!
This also tastes amazing with a tablespoon of almond or peanut butter stirred through... packs some extra protein in there aswell!  Perfect for a pre- or post- workout breakfast.
