So this morning I wanted to have something different for breakfast. I had an unopened box of Quinoa Flakes in my pantry that I have been meaning to try.
Quinoa is a gluten free grain and is also a complete protein.
The nutrition stats are similar to rolled oats.
- 1/3 cup Quinoa Flakes cooked in 1 cup water
- Cinnamon & Pumpkin Pie Spice to taste
- splash Vanilla extract
- 1tsp Pure Maple Syrup
- Cacao Nibs
It tastes like regular Quinoa, but with the texture of light and fluffy rolled oats. While I prefer my oats and oat bran, this was definitely a tasty breakfast and a nice change. I will definitely be making it again. Quinoa Flakes would also be great to use in a savory dish!
My Quinoa breakfast was paired with a cup of Yogi Tea advising me to speak the truth.
