Low-FODMAP Peanut Butter and Banana Breakfast Quinoa; Gluten-free, Vegan

Printer Friendly Version

Quick, easy and so delicious.  A low-FODMAP recipe for breakfast quinoa is the perfect start to your day!

Quinoa is one of the most nutritious foods you can make.   The plant has been cultivated for over 7,000 years in South America and is a naturally gluten-free, low-FODMAP source of all 20 amino acids.  Thus it is known as a ‘complete protein source’.

One cup of quinoa contains 8 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber, in only 222 calories!  Plus it is packed with vitamins and minerals.  My low-FODMAP recipe adds to the power of this breakfast with healthy fats from peanuts, and nutrients from the bananas.  Low-FODMAP Peanut Butter and Banana Quinoa will fill you up all morning long!
