Breakfast of Champions







A recipe on this blog? This is where I pretend that I actually know how to cook/bake.....

Sadie and I made some deliciously nutritious flourless quinoa bread for breakfast this morning.
It's a little bland, but very moist. I recommend toasting it and topping with butter and organic agave syrup. Popular with the little folk as well!

1 c quinoa
3/4 c buttermilk
2 large eggs
1/4 tbsp salt
2 c quick rolled oats
1/2 c ground flax
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/4 tsp baking powder

wash quinoa, place in bowl, cover with 2 c water.
Cover and refrigerate at least 6 hrs (up to 10)
Preheat oven to 350. Drain quinoa into blender with buttermilk, eggs and salt. Puree until smooth.
Combine oats, flax, baking soda and baking powder. Add quinoa, mix and bland well.
Pour into 8x3 bread pan lined with parchment. bake one hour and cool. store in fridge/freezer.

Try it and let me know if you like it!

At first glance I thought it was Nutella spread on the mornings bread! Looks good! Ben is a BIG breakfast eater and eats most of his food in that one meal...like two big man breakfasts on the plate of a 2 year old. He'd dig something like this for sure!
