I put the dry ingredients into baggies and store several baggies in the cupboard. All I have to do in the morning is add the wet ingredients and bake while I am doing my animal chores and I have an amazingly filling breakfast.
Native to South America, quinoa is rich in fiber, protein and other nutrients. This is a lovely variation on the more common rice pudding and is best served warm. The final product is firm and can be sliced. Top with your favorite fruit and this dessert makes for a terrific breakfast. Since I tend to not like my desserts very sweet, I usually make this with 2/3 cup sugar or a combination of sugar and Splenda. (For Core followers, you can make this Core bu skipping the currants and nuts, and replacing the sugar with Splenda. Add the Splenda towards the end to avoid the artificially sweetened taste.)
Yummy!! This recipe will knock the socks off any guest! This recipe my mother originally found out of a cookbook, but unfortunately I do not know which. This works well with both frozen and fresh strawberries. I'd imagine almost any fruit could be substituted as well. (Prep time does not include chilling of strawberries).
This is my variation of the many banana muffin recipes I have searched through. Very moist, texture is a little spongey, and the right amount of sweetness. Feel free to be liberal with the amount of bananas you add--you can't go wrong!
Russell made this for brunch for the two of us this morning. It is really a luxurious dish and could probably feed 3 or 4 people less greedy than us! The original recipe came from the net, but he has modified it quite a bit. I would also enjoy smaller sized pieces of this served just warm as fingerfood. Yum. Or served with a green salad for lunch.
Just adding, we have made this in a round pan too, and cut into wedges (see phot) this worked really well.
I mix this together, cover it and refrigerate overnight, then bake it in the morning. Every time I serve this, when I have guests, they always ask for the recipe. Feel free to add whatever you would add to your regular oatmeal. I sometimes add nuts, raisins or blueberries. Add what you like and I hope you enjoy it!
