Peanut Butter Quinoa with Apples & Honey

You’re probably thinking, there she goes again with peanut butter, but really there is legitimacy here and reason because this is a meal and not a dessert (even though it so tastes like the latter and is scrumptious).

I saw this on OhShineOn and just knew that I had to make it when I needed a quick fix dinner, and so glad I did because this was just fantastic. I love all 4 ingredients of quinoa, pb apples and honey so had high hopes. Was a little hesitant on making a sweeter quinoa but understandably so when it is usually paired with more savory flavors.

After having my best 5k run time thus far into my 1/2 marathon training (a week and a half…such a long time haha) I thought I should indulge…even though this is really healthy and all the ingredients are beneficial so it wasn’t one of those indulges that makes you feel guilty.

So go and make this and treat yourself to a spoonful of delicious that will have your tastebuds bowing down to you and begging for more (:
