I had Friday morning “off” so I took the opportunity to make something nice for breakfast. Now, my “nice” may not be your “nice.” It’s like how I wrote to A (PT6) after we both left The Place so I scribbled a note saying congratulations on the new gig, thanks for teaching me how to walk, and BTW, your “seconds” (e.g. do X and hold that position for 30 sec) are longer than normal people seconds. I just thought he should be aware. The discrepancy only occurred when he was not looking at his watch or the clock. Okay, fine – maybe the discrepancy was only in my head. But still.
Anyhoo, I think this baked quinoa/oatmeal is delicious. But then again, I’m me. I also think the chocolate chia pudding waiting for me downstairs is delicious. I’ll subject you to that another time. But now, it’s time for PBCC Quoatmeal.
Note: This recipe was based on Chocolate Covered Katie’s Boatmeal. Also, I often do not measure since I’d rather eyeball it than walk around more and get the appropriate instruments, so I apologize for my vague “spoonfuls” etc. in advance. FYI, “PBBCC” = peanut butter, banana, chocolate chip.
Baked PBBCC Quinoa Oatmeal
Preheat Oven to 375; Grease ramekin(s) – I used 2 silicon muffin things, a mini loaf pan, anything small and oven safe
- 1/4 c rolled oats (uncooked)
- 1/4 c quinoa (cooked – Mommy makes a bunch in the rice cooker and keeps it in the fridge for me)
- handfull of chocolate chips
- 1/2 a banana
- 1/4 c coconut milk (I had this on hand, and I wanted to include the fat content therein, but you could use whatever you like)
- splash of vanilla
- pinch of salt
- 1 spoonful of PB2, or you could try regular peanut butter
- 1 spoonful of stevia
- sprinkle of cinnamon
Blend everything except the quinoa, oatmeal and chocolate chips. I used the immersion blender, but you could try just mashing up the banana and stirring everything vigorously. Add in the quinoa, oatmeal and chocolate chips and stir until combined. Pour into your baking dish and bake at 375 for 20 minutes. Then broil for an additional 3-5 minutes until it’s as brown as you like.
Enjoy your breakfast!
