Flax Granola

Flax granola….yep it’s just flax seeds and whatever other toppings you want to add. I hate blogs that give you a huge story and then you have to continue to read well scroll all the way to the end just to get the recipe. So I won’t do that. Here it is. I got it from the Plan book. There’s 2 parts to this.

Part 1:

1 cup flax seeds

1/2 cup water.

Stir together and let sit overnight in fridge.

Part 2:

Preheat oven to 300

Place parchment paper on cookie sheet.

Poor flax seeds on cookie sheet and bake for an hour. Keep checking and stirring until all water is absorbed. About an hour. After 50 minutes add raisins, craisins, almonds etc….. bake 10 min. That is it!

➖When I make this, I use 3 cups of flax seeds. 1 1/2 cups water. 1/2 c almonds, 1/2 c craisins, 1/2 c raisins. This usually lasts about 5 days for 1 cup servings. Then I add 1/2 c blueberries and coconut milk.

Coconut Milk Quinoa (Breakfast)

10151189_10203785051976403_3524594821017738218_nI love Quinoa and decided to make this for breakfast. This is super easy! I don’t like to cook, but managed making this.

Coconut Milk Quinoa (Breakfast)1001974_10203785051896401_7998987195417182014_n

Ingredients:

2 servings

1/2 cup dry quinoa

3/4 cup coconut milk (canned)

2 tsp vanilla

1/2 tsp cinnamon

Topping:

Drizzle coconut milk

2 bananas (1 for each serving)

2 tbsp walnuts (1 for each)

2 packets of Stevia (1 for each)

Mix all ingredients over the stove and bring to a boil. Then put on low and cook for about 15 minutes or until quinoa is soft. After that split in two servings and add the toppings!  And that is it!

Stevia is optional….I thought it had to be a bit sweeter. I also only had red quinoa, but plain is fine too.

Banana Protein Pancakes #1

IMG_2127Banana Protein Pancakes #1.  I’ve tried so many different versions of these and this one turned out the best!

Mix together:

  • 1 egg
  • 3 tbsp egg whites
  • 1/2 scoop Shakeology – chocolate
  • 2 bananas

Topping:

1/2 container Chobani Greek yogurt and 1 tbsp walnuts.

IMG_2122Then make them like pancakes in a frying pan. I used some EVOO spray to prevent from sticking. Make sure to cook long enough so it won’t fall apart. IMG_2124At the end I took half a container of apple Chobani Greek yogurt and walnuts. No need for syrup!
