I’ve been drawn to these mango quinoa bakes this week because they’re fast ** and can be **prepared the night before .
That, and there was a mango sale at Superstore over the weekend. Let’s just say I may have gone a little overboard on the stockpiling.
Bonus is, I’ve learned how to freeze multiple pounds of mango, perfect for smoothies – dice into cubes and scatter across a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Place in the freezer overnight, then transfer to a freezer safe bag.
What happens when you combine mango, quinoa flakes, egg, coconut, and chia?
- 1/2 cup quinoa flakes
- 1/4 cup mango puree [about 1/2 of a fresh mango]
- 1 egg *see note
- 1/4 banana, diced
- 2 tablespoon dried papaya, chopped
- 1 tablespoon shredded unsweetened coconut
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- 1/8 teaspoon almond extract
