Crock Pot Banana Bread Breakfast Quinoa. November 5, 2014

I feel calling this a crock pot recipe is kind of misleading. It is made in a crock pot, but it is not one of those dump it in and leave it all night so you wake up to a nice hot breakfast kind of situations. It is more of a make it on Sunday afternoon so you have it to eat for breakfast during the week situation. Unless of course, you are one of those moms who gets up way before the children and has a nice hot breakfast waiting for them. That is definitely not the situation around here.

Whatever the situation, make this soon! It is so good and it really does taste like banana bread. Protein packed quinoa, mashed bananas, walnuts, butter and spices cook up for a comforting and healthy breakfast. This will keep in the refrigerator all week and reheats really well.

    So funny! I hadn’t thought of breakfast quinoa at all until about two weeks ago, I made a bunch and reheated it for several days last week, and then I see your post today! It’s a great example of how you learn about something and then see it everywhere. I didn’t put bananas on mine, though. I need to do that next time! Visiting through the Blogging Collective. =)

    YUM! For some reason I never thought of eating quinoa for breakfast! (I just recently started eating it in the first place so maybe that’s why!) But this sounds great!
