Banana Bread Quinoa

As I am in need of some new recipes, Im searching and searching for something simple to just throw in the oven and walk away!!  Something easy where I can throw ingredients together and not have a big mess… I mean I have kids and taking care of their mess is enough for me!! 

As Im prepping for my NPC Figure competition, I am trying to think of ingredients I can also incorporate in my diet for now.  
As I am looking around my kitchen, I notice my bananas are going bad, my Quinoa is almost gone, and I have a baggie of almonds sitting on my counter beside my bananas…. And this is what I came up with!!!

Ingredients: 
1/2 cup uncooked Quinoa
1/2 cup almond milk
1 cup water
1 banana
1/4 cup raw almonds (sliced)
1/8 cup raisins
1 tbsp light brown sugar
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp cinnamon

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
Take 3/4 of banana and mush with spoon in small bowl and set aside.
Mix all other ingredients together and pour into no stick dish (I used a medium rectangle dish)
Take mushed banana and combine into mixture
Bake for 35 min
Let cool for 5 min before eating
Top off with rest of banana sliced
ENJOY!!

Since I am currently doing the home fitness programs INSANITY MAX 30 as my morning cardio and my weight training is BODY BEAST, I am giving myself a little leeway with having the 1/2 banana and small amount of raisins and brown sugar.. After 2 weeks, I will cut out all fruit and most sugar 🙂
