Meal Prep Addition

So, I love Pinterest! Who doesn't right? I get a lot of my clean meal ideas from there for sure.

I have tried different breakfast quinoa recipes and haven't really been a fan....until now! I have to admit, as much as I truly want to be in love with this super food, I just cant even think about eating it alone as a side dish or the protein portion of a salad.

Why not mix it with peanut butter? Peanut butter makes everything better. I got this recipe from The Lean Green Bean and have to be honest, I WAS hesitant to try them. But, they were amazing and quite filling when paired with fresh fruit.

Here's the recipe:

  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour (or chickpea flour for gluten-free)
  • 2 cups cooked quinoa
  • 2 cups oats
  • 2/3 cup nuts, chopped
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 2/3 cups peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup applesauce
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup craisins
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips, optional
  1. Combine applesauce, vanilla, eggs, peanut butter and honey in a small bowl and mix well.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and stir until just mixed.
  3. Spoon into a greased 9x13 pan and bake at 375 for 20 min or until golden brown.
  4. Let cool and cut into bars.
  5. Store in the refrigerator
