Banana almond overnight quinoa is a really quick, easy and delicious bowl of nutrition to get you started first thing in the morning. It’s great waking up and knowing your day starts with this. Especially because it’s pre-made!
If you think it’s a bit weird having quinoa for breakfast then this banana almond overnight quinoa will make you think again.
This overnight quinoa breakfast recipe is a great way to use up any left over quinoa and it’s a great alternative breakfast to porridge. It’s packed with protein too.
I found myself making several batches of this over the course of a couple of weeks just because it just filled me up so well after my morning gym routine.
By the time I get into work, I’ve been up since 4am, done some work towards my blog, done my exercise routine, and as you can imagine I am pretty hungry!
In winter, when it’s colder, I’ll make myself a steaming bowl of hot porridge in the microwave at work, topped with various toppings like nuts and chai seeds.
But now it’s summer (or at least slightly warmer here in Scotland) it allows me to vary my breakfast staple a little and actually consider a cold breakfast!
This banana almond overnight quinoa absolutely hits that spot!
And talking of warmer weather (and forgive me if I’ve just jinxed the excellent weather we’ve had recently), this weekend I’m heading up to the hills around Braemar to tackle some of the mountains there.
Mike and I will be staying at Rucksacks Bunkhouse, which is fantastic accommodation that we always make for if we’re heading to that area.
The Bunkhouse is situated in the centre of the village of Braemar, where there is a decent sized shop for food plus a couple of good pubs where we normally eat out after our day in the hills, otherwise we just use the cooking facilities in the Bunkhouse.
Anyway, I’ll catch up with you next week, hopefully with a re-cap of the weekend. I’m really hoping that the weather can be, and can stay as stunning as it was last weekend when Lady Lynne and I walked The Greenock Cut and this was the view: –
