Since my Paula Deen loving, baking crazy sister moved in with us, we've had a lot of muffins, cookies and breads on our hands. My hubby loves it, my hips don't. So tonight we decided to make banana bread with a healthy twist. We whipped up a Quinoa Banana Loaf.
It was a pretty standard banana loaf recipe with cooked quinoa for added texture and nutrients. We also added chopped dark chocolate for a sweet touch.
I've recently enjoyed experimenting with different grains. Mixing it up with barley and chickpeas in chili, lentils as a side dish and cold quinoa salads.
I wish to brighten your day with a little inspiration. Inspiration to try something new. Inspiration to find joy in cooking and crafting, entertaining and styling, writing and sharing. I’m Alexandra Joy and I have many joys to share.
