Banana Bread Quinoa “Oats”

This has been a recurring meal for me for the past few weeks because the quinoa keeps me so full! I think its keeping me more full because quinoa has high protein than oats and sometimes more fiber depending on what oats you’re using. The fresh banana gives this such a great flavor and truly satisfies any sweet cravings i have! I extra love it because it takes 5 minutes to prepare as long as your quinoa is cooked ahead of time. You HAVE TO try this meal!


  • Heaping 1/2 cup cooked quinoa (i cook a cup of quinoa on Sundays so I have plenty for the week
  • 1/2 cup Almond, Cashew or Coconut milk + more for personal preference
  • 2 Tbsp Flax meal & Chia Blend (or one or the other if you don’t have this)
  • 1 Scoop 1Up Nutrition Banana Bread Vegan Protein (code XTINA for 20% off)
  • 1 Tbsp Cacao Powder (optional but i love it)
  • 1 Banana (the more brown spots the sweeter it will be)
  • Coconut Butter (coconut mana)
  • Cinnamon, Stevia, Pink Salt (optional)


  • In a small sauce pan add your cooked quinoa, flax/chia blend, cacao powder & 1/2 c Nut Milk
  • Warm on med high heat until milk is warm. Stir in your protein powder + a sprinkle of cinnamon and stevia.
  • TWO WAYS TO EAT THIS: My favorite way is to wait until i have a BLACK banana, mash it while leaving some chunks and when protein is stirred into the quinoa, add the banana and stir everything together. You can also slice a banana and add it to the top but I love when the entire bowl has the fresh chunky banana.
  • Put your Coconut Butter container in the microwave and heat for 45 sec – 1 min. Stir and drizzle the melted butter on top! SO GOOD!
