Quinoa Breakfast Berry Bake

Quinoa Breakfast Berry Bake

July 29, 2020

I’m developing some new recipes to share with you. Here’s one you can use for breakfast or a snack, for those of you who can’t eat oats. For those who can, just replace the quinoa with gluten free oats. This is a low sugar recipe; feel free to add more honey to your taste. This was perfect for me as a mid-afternoon or after dinner snack that packs a lot of fiber, protein and fat. You can have one of these after dinner to help your digestion or take them along with you for a post-workout “pick-me-up." 

Let me know what you think. Enjoy!”
