Quinoa Crunch Coco Pops

 

So what's so great about quinoa?! It's termed a complete protein, which means unlike most plant based foods, it consists of all 9 essential amino acids.. While that's great, it's merely a "source" of protein.. It contains 14g of protein per 100g, and 100g is a whole lot of quinoa!!

Furthermore, like all other plant based proteins, its low the most important amino acid - Leucine. Leucine is the KEY amino acid for stimulating muscle protein synthesis..

The take home? Quinoa is a great nutritious food, so a great addition to your diet. But eating this on its own, especially post-training, is not adequate to recover from training. So if you're having this for brekkie, make sure you add it to some yoghurt!

Adding it into granola creates the most delicious crunch!!

Ingredients

15g coconut oil
2 tsp maple syrup
80g oats
80g quinoa (uncooked)
