Breakfast Quinoa with Chocolate and Peanut Butter Recipe

By

Chocolate peanut butter breakfast quiona - Vegetarian, vegan, high-protein and gluten-free
Breakfast quinoa with chocolate and peanut butter recipe. Chocolate and peanut butter is a flavor combination from heaven. Even with a bit of cocoa and sweetener, this breakfast cereal is still much more nutritious than the sugar-packed, processed, and refined cardboard-box brands in the supermarket.

  • ½ cup quinoa
  • 1½ cups soy milk
