Overnight quinoa flakes make for a truly nutritious breakfast, especially when they taste like banana bread. Quinoa is a great source of easily-digestible, complete protein, while bananas offer a richness of minerals, like potassium and manganese. Flavored with maple syrup and cinnamon, these flakes will make you feel you're eating dessert for breakfast.
