Peanut Butter Quinoa Flakes



I have a dirty secret... I'm in my 30's and up until this summer I had never tried Quinoa.... Ok, maybe not as dirty as I thought but seriously.... I guess I've just been hiding under a rock because not only had I not tried it until recently, I hadn't even heard of Quinoa. 
So I thought I would give it a try and turns out, yea.... Why hadn't we tried this sooner!  The hunt was on.... After a couple Google searches we found Pereg Natural Foods and are having fun trying a few new
recipes.  
The other day, I made these Quinoa Flakes as directed on the package for Maison.  Quinoa has no natural sweetness at all so we added some cinnamon and banannas for some additional flavors.  He liked it fair enough.  Said it needed more sugar but kiddo.... that's what we're trying to eliminate.  



















Today we're trying a Peanut Butter Quinoa Flake Porridge.  (My house smells like peanut butter cookies!  Maybe that's next...)
Of course I tweeked just a little bit and like every recipe your more than welcome to do the same to accommodate your own taste.  This recipe is not sweet.  Let me repeat that... THIS RECIPE IS NOT SWEET!  So if your a sweets eater or giving it to your kids for the first time, some maple syrup does the trick!  
One thing to remember is this is a great recipe to make the night before and just heat up for an quick easy breakfast in the morning.
