Breakfast Bowl

by nomeatbarefeet

Well, we wanted to get at least ONE more post in before the end of 2012, and since we didn’t put up a Recipe Sunday post here is a belated one.

One recent night we had some left over millet from the previous nights dinner. We decided to add some bananas to make a breakfast bowl and voila!…delicious! This is another versatile recipe that allows you to sub in whatever up I have around, which can be handy when you are trying to simply get some food in your stomach.


  • 1-2 Bananas (riper the better)
  • A grain (quinoa, oat bran, millet, etc.)
  • Non-dairy milk (we use almond, but soy, rice, or hemp are just fine)
  • Assorted toppings and add-ins (e.g., nuts, raisins, cinnamon, maple syrup, etc.)

The How To:

  1. Cook the grain according to the specifications using the non-dairy milk instead of water. E.g., quinoa is a 2:1 ratio.
  2. After the grain has finished cooking (or when it is just about done). Add the banana and mash with a potato masher, fork, or wooden spoon.
  3. Add the toppings and/or add-ins.

The great thing about this recipe is that you can make the grain the night before and the just add some more liquid, the bananas, and the add-ins when you have breakfast. Also, you can use any grain and any combination of ingredients.

There you have it. The last Recipe Sunday post of 2012. Enjoy, and eat well in the new year!
