Chocolate Banana Breakfast Quinoa


My fascination with quinoa continues with week with my latest creation - Chocolate Banana Breakfast Quinoa.

I have to say that this is my favourite breakfast quinoa combination to date, and I have already had it for breakfast several times. It is safe to say that I am big chocolate fan and to be honest, I can't really live without it (and why should I!) But I do want to find healthier alternatives. So when I made this recipe and tasted it for the first time, I knew that I was onto a winner.

My other favourite healthy chocolate recipes include Raw Bounty Bites, Raw Nutella Slice and Dairy Free Raspberry Ripe.
