Organic Quinoa flakes are made from pressed quinoa. While you may enjoy whole grain quinoa for savory lunches and dinners, you might prefer quinoa flakes for a quick breakfast. They are a great option for quick, healthy and high protein breakfast on busy weekdays.
- Nutrition Profile- Organic Quinoa flakes are naturally very low in calories, very low in fat, and cholesterol-free. They are an excellent source of plant-based protein and dietary fibers. A 1/3 cup serving of dry quinoa flakes provides about 130 calories and just 2 grams of fat, with zero cholesterol. Quinoa flakes also provide a healthy amount of dietary fiber, with about 2.5 grams per 1/3 cup, and 4.3 grams of protein.
- Cookin instructions- Quinoa flakes are ready in almost no time, just like instant oatmeal. Boil water, add quinoa flakes, let it sit for a minute or two, stir, and you’re ready to go. Use a 1-to-3 ratio of quinoa flakes to water (1 cup of quinoa flakes to 3 cups of water). You can always adjust the water to your preference. You might add a touch of non-dairy milk just before eating and use a little less water. While quinoa flakes are good on their own, you can mix them with some oatmeal, hemps seeds and maple syrup.
- Fact- White quinoa has the most delicate taste and the lightest texture and it cooks up a bit fluffier than other types of quinoa. Quinoa flakes cook in under 90 seconds and make the most amazing, creamy hot cereals. They act not only as a binder, but they also lighten up no-bake treats.
