Quinoa is a little protein packed seed that cooks quickly in 15 minutes in boiling water. No draining is necessary and you can basically add it to ANYTHING and you’ve got a fantastic meal.
Add some Greek yogurt, peanut butter and cocoa powder and a few other ingredients and you will be loving this recipe.
If you’d rather reduce the calories, fat or points a bit more you could remove the peanut butter without it ruining the flavor. I’m loving it as a special breakfast lately that keeps me full for hours.
