Using my leftover cranberries from this weekend’s Cranberry Walnut Bread crumbs has been an easy task.  I decided to add these nutritional powerhouses to yesterday’s breakfast.  I was motivated by this Hot Breakfast Banana Quinoa to make a Banana Quinoa Cake with Cranberries.

I combined the cooked quinoa, egg, mashed banana, flax, cinnamon, and cranberries in a microwave safe bowl.  Three and a half simple minutes later, I had a warm and hearty breakfast!

Covered in peanut butter, this breakfast was divine.  The warm cranberries ‘pop’ in your mouth and who doesn’t love warm gooey peanut butter?!  It was loaded with protein which was perfect as I headed off to meet the trainer for a strength session.

  1. What a great idea! Is the quinoa cooked when you combine it with the rest of the ingredients?
