Still on my Samoas cookie kick I decided to switch things up and make a breakfast quinoa bowl instead of the Samoas Cookie Protein Shake I have been enjoying for breakfast a lot lately. While I made this for breakfast, because I love my desserts for breakfast, it can be enjoyed anytime. I decided to go with quinoa as we had some leftover from the night before and it worked so well with the coconut and I enjoyed the texture. The first time I had it warm, as it is so cold here and warm breakfasts are great for cold winter days. I also tried it with cold quinoa and it tasted like more of a dessert but I didn’t get that warm cookie comfort food feel. Either way though it is delicious and gave me that cookie fix as well as a healthy nutritious start to the day!

Are you a sweets in the morning person? What is your favorite Girl Scout Cookie?

 

Samoas Cookie Quinoa Bowl
Makes 1 serving
3/4-1c cooked quinoa
2 dates, pitted
1/3-1/2c cashew milk, or non dairy milk of choice (used So Delicious)
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1-2 TBSP cashew or almond butter (used Justin’s Vanilla Almond Butter)
1/4c finely shredded toasted coconut, divided
1-2 TBSP cacao nibs or chocolate chips (used Navitas Naturals Cacao Nibs)
chocolate drizzle topping, optional (1 tablespoon each melted coconut oil, agave, and cacao/cocoa powder whisked together)

 

If enjoying this breakfast bowl hot warm quinoa. In a Vitamix, or high-speed blender, blend together dates, milk (using 1/3 cup if you would like it less creamy as shown in the photo or 1/2 cup if you would like it creamier), vanilla, and nut butter until smooth. In a bowl mix together half of the toasted coconut and half of the cacao nib/chocolate, quinoa, and the milk mixture. Top with remaining cacao nibs/chocolate, toasted coconut, and if desired chocolate drizzle. Enjoy!

      My thoughts exactly! I could have a box of nutritionless cookies and feel blah or I can have this every morning if I want, or I have been known to have it other times of the day, and feel amazing!

      Haha Thank you! Don’t worry the sun will come out tomorrow, and you get to have breakfast again! Of course sometimes it is too hard to wait in which case you pull a Brinner (breakfast for dinner) which I do often! 😉
