Super Healthy Banana Multigrain Breakfast Porridge

As Autumn arrives and the brisk weather comes along we can begin to take out our warm clothes and even better, cook warm food! This belly warming bowl of awesomeness might not look like much but it sure packs a punch when it come to nutrition! Jammed full of protein, fiber, potassium and other goodies this is an ideal pre-exercise breakfast. Even better? If your banana is ripe enough you won't even need to sweeten it with anything else!

Serves 1 light breakfast (I don't have much of an appetite in the morning and tend to have fruit with it, don't hesitate to double it!)
 Prep time: 5 min.

-3/4c. Water
-1 1/2 tbsp. flax seed
-2 tsp. quinoa
-2 tbsp. quick cooking oats
-1/2 of a ripe banana
-Soy milk/ milk to taste
-1 tsp. maple syrup/honey/sweetener (optional)
-1 pinch nutmeg or cinnamon (optional)
-Seasonal fruit or nuts (or both!) to top with

1) Grind quinoa and flax in a coffee grinder or other such instrument until finely ground, add with water and oats to a small pot
2)Heat grains and water at medium heat, crushing the banana into it with a masher, fork or even your hand (I won't tell, I promise)
3) Add spices and maple syrup if using, cook mixture until banana has completely softened, grain have fluffed and the porridge has reached your desired consistency, don't hesitate to add more water if you need to.
 4)Serve hot with soy milk and top with seasonal fruit
