This Quinoa Banana Chocolate Chip Breakfast Bake is a great way to start the day off – kind of like banana chocolate chip bread in a bowl.
Recently, I picked up a copy of The Daniel Plan 40 Days to a Healthier Life by Rick Warren, which encourages living a healthy lifestyle by focusing on five areas: faith, food, fitness, focus and friends. The basis for this plan is that God designed our bodies to be healthy, and in order for us to engage fully in the purpose for our life, to love, serve, connect and celebrate the gifts God has given us, we need to treat our bodies and minds with the care that He intended. Faith and friends are the “secret sauce’ that make The Daniel Plan so effective.
Pastor Rick Warren and thousands of people from the Saddleback Church transformed their lives through the Daniel Plan – 15,000 people lost over 260,000 pounds in the first year! That’s an incredible measure of success.
I’m still working my way through this book, but in the meanwhile, I wanted to share a recipe inspired by the Quinoa Breakfast Bake recipe in the back of the book. Think of this Quinoa Banana Chocolate Chip Breakfast Bake as a healthier version of banana chocolate chip bread. Even my kids who are not big fans of quinoa loved this.
