BREAKFAST!! YES! mango tropics quinoa flake bake!!!
- 1/2 cup quinoa flakes
- 1/4 cup mango puree [about 1/2 of a fresh mango]
- 1 egg *see note
- 1/4 banana, diced
- 2 tbsp dried papaya, chopped
- 1 tbsp shredded unsweetened coconut
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1/8 tsp almond extract
Optional toppings: coconut butter, sliced banana, cashews, coconut, raspberries
Prepare a 16oz. microwave safe dish by oiling with a dab of coconut oil. Set aside. Place all ingredients in a small bowl and mix until fully incorporated. Press mixture into prepared dish and even out with fork.
Microwave option: Place in the microwave and cook for 3 1/2 minutes. You’ll know when it’s done when it rises slightly, is harder to the touch, and pulls away from the sides of the dish. Don’t bake it too long, or you’ll have a Frisbee!
Oven option: Place in a preheated oven at 350F and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
note: to make vegan, omit egg and add 1/4 cup of extra mango puree.
No Flour Pancake
This is by far the easiest thing i have ever ever made. It was really yummy and with a good protein in it a good fat and some yummy carbs it’s pretty much the perfect way to start the day! (or even a yummy snack too!)
These yummy pancakes only had 3 ingredients.. that’s right 3!
Banana, Peanutbutter (or nut butter of your choice) and an egg
Mash the banana
add and mix the egg well
add in a spoonful of your nut butter
i found it easier to flip them when i made a few small pancakes instead of one big one. Cook a few minutes on each side. and enjoy!
oh lord this looks so TASTY! :) the perfect thing to eat after a workout ….
