Banana Maple Walnut Overnight Quinoa

This tasty quinoa recipe is a great on the go breakfast item. It also makes for a fantastic pre-workout snack with a perfect balance of carbs, protein and fat. (4 servings)

1 large ripe banana
2 cups cooked quinoa
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
3 tablespoons maple syrup
2 tablespoons chia seeds
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/3 cup chopped walnuts

  1. Mash the banana and mix well with the cooked quinoa, milk, yogurt, maple syrup, chia seeds and vanilla.
  2. Divide into four 1 cup containers. (I use canning jars)
  3. Top with chopped walnuts, cover containers and refrigerate for at least 8 hours.
