First, this quinoa casserole is so good. It may not be the prettiest food in the world, but we both LOVED it!
|We added zucchini and used 2% cheddar (not white cheddar).|
Mix dry ingredients in a bowl: 3 cups GF Oats, two large handfuls of mixed nuts, a large handful of unsweetened coconut, a couple generous dashes of cinnamon, a dash of ginger, salt.
Heat wet ingredients on the stove top together: 1/3 cup coconut oil, 1/3 cup honey, 1/3 cup agave syrup.
Then mix the wet ingredients into the dry. Spread on a cookie sheet with parchment paper or foil and bake at 325 for 20 minutes. Let cook, and mix in craisins and raisins (amount to your liking).
Very simple! You don't have to be exact with it, just add in what you like :) I like to eat it with plain 0% Fage greek yogurt (no sugar added) and half a banana.
Accidental Chocolate Banana Smoothie
Made from this pin, but the end result will not look like the picture below!
Well, the caption left off a couple key ingredients that were in the recipe when you clicked through, like vanilla protein powder (what makes the shake in the picture above creamy and Wendy's Frosty like).
When I realized what had happened, I threw in the rest of the banana and also a handful of coconut to give it bit more flavor. So the total mix of ingredients used were: 3/4 cup almond milk (I had unsweetened on hand), about 15 ice cubes, 1/2 tsp vanilla, 1-2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder (I did one heaping spoonful), one banana, handful of unsweetened coconut.
Although the end result was a mistake, it ended up being a really good and really refreshing low calorie/healthy afternoon pick me up.
