Sweet Potato Breakfast Quinoa

On a chilly winter Saturday, I am big fan of a breakfast that is…








And this morning’s breakfast, based on this recipe for Hot Banana Breakfast Quinoa, was all of that and more.  Making a big batch of grains once a week is a good habit to get into, especially when you can use them throughout the week for salads, snacks, and breakfast.  This morning, breakfast began with leftover quinoa and a baked sweet potato from last night.

Add eggs and spice (the only remaining ingredients).




And stir everything together until really well combined.

Microwave for 3 minutes and this hot, simple breakfast is ready!




This breakfast is unlike your typical microwave oats.  It is spongy and almost cake-like.




You can top it with cinnamon, nut butter, maple syrup, or agave.




And enjoy surrounded by fresh berries.




This is the BEST way to start your day!  And considering, this decadent tasting breakfast takes only 5 minutes to make, it will give you plenty of time to sip on a warm tea or coffee while reading the paper or scrolling through your blog roll.




And because it is loaded with protein, this breakfast will energize you for wherever your Saturday takes you. 

I am heading into the city to try out a Core Power Yoga class with a friend!  So excited!




You HAVE to try this breakfast!
