Protein packed oatless porridge


OK so I could eat oatmeal like every day of my life, and actually that is mostly true (except for the past few weeks, we have been on a waffle craze!). But otherwise I think I have been eating oatmeal like every day for the last 7 years, No JOKE!

But…. it is nice to change it up every once in a while! So when GoGO Quinoa shared some of their amazing products with me I was up for the challenge of incorporating some of them into some of my staple recipes! Actually I wish I came up with this recipe a few years back when my son was reacting to oats. This oat-less recipe is perfect as a change to the normal oats for breakfast or if you are sensitive to oats. An the bonus is that it is SUPER packed with protein. Perfect after a morning workout or to keep you full and satisfied for a long day!

Hope you enjoy the recipe as much as we did, and don’t forget to share your creations with me if you try this recipe. I love and very much appreciate any comments or feedbacks you guys have!
