It tastes even better when topped with a dollop of extra peanut butter and shaved dark chocolate. Well, it’s drool worthy and a complete meal for all ages.
Love peanut butter quinoa flake porridge
I like the idea of porridge because it’s warm, filling, chewy, and easy to carry in a car if I am in a hurry. It’s absolutely mess free and yet scrumptious in all respect. This porridge soft, moist and easy to swallow for small kids and toddlers as well. It’s a great meal to add protein into their diet and start their mornings in a healthy way.
I like quick and easy recipes especially if it is a breakfast. Mostly, I depend on smoothies for my breakfast but I like some variations once in a while. I have cooked few recipes with quinoa flakes earlier and I definitely love it. This time I tried Peanut Butter Quinoa Flake Porridge with it. I must say I am head over heels in love with this breakfast recipe.
What toppings to pair with peanut butter quinoa flake porridge.
This porridge is incredibly simple. It requires 5 main ingredients and one pot. The toppings are of your choice but I prefer shaved chocolate and fresh strawberries. Sometimes, I add extra peanut butter if I am peanut crazy on a particular day. I am on a low sugar diet so for me I didn’t need any sweetener. However, if you are looking for a sweeter porridge drizzle some pure maple syrup over it and devour…devour….devour…..

That is such a great idea to make porridge from quinoa. It is so good for you.
I’ve lived in the South my entire life and never had porridge before! I personally don’t like peanut butter, but my husband and boys love it. I’ll have to make this for breakfast for them one day and try a different one for myself.
