1/8 cup brown sugar
1/8 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
1 medium banana, cut into chunks

  2. Once quinoa is cooked, add in the brown sugar and maple syrup and stir to combine.

  3. Add in walnuts and banana to the quinoa. Stir again to combine all ingredients and serve while warm.

  4. Source of recipe: Instead of making banana nut flavored oatmeal, I wanted to try it with quinoa.
