Leanne's Pumpkin Pie Quinoa Breakfast Bake

 I told you that I had my eye on Leanne @Healthful Pursuit's  Pumpkin Pie Quinoa Breakfast Bake. I just couldn't wait any longer.  My son's wedding is two weeks from tomorrow, so I need all the energy that I can get. Fortunately, I have my dress for the wedding and the rehearsal dinner, and shoes, so my clothes are all set. I'm getting so excited.  I still have to figure out how to keep my makeup looking good for 12 hours, get my hair cut and highlighted, take Bailey, the Wonder Dog, to the groomer, get a manicure, pick up Scott's tux, and many more things, I can't remember at the moment. So I desperately need the Pumpkin Pie Quinoa Breakfast Bake, now.

Pumpkin Pie Quinoa Breakfast Bake is full of healthy ingredients, like quinoa, pumpkin, almond milk, maple syrup, coconut oil, nuts and spices.  It sounds like dessert, but you can have this for breakfast. Of course, I had to make a few changes, like I always do. Instead of the maple syrup, which has way too many carbs, I just used a sprinkling of brown sugar Splenda.  Also, I didn't have coconut oil, so I used a little Smart Balance,  Then I subbed whole wheat flour for the almond flour, and finally I used almonds, instead of pecans.  My version isn't gluten free, but the main ingredients are the same.  This bake is so good with the crunch of the quinoa and the almonds, and the creamy pumpkin flavors, you'll think that it's dessert. but you are really eating breakfast, a healthy one at that. So If you really need to make Leanne@Healthful Pursuit's Pumpkin Pie Quinoa Breakfast Bake, head on over there now, and say Hi to Leanne!

Oh, and Yes, I just remembered another thing that I am doing this weekend.  I am going to Emma's Golden Birthday?  Do you know what a Golden birthday is?  More on that next week!

If any of you are running in the Chicago Marathon, Good Luck!

  1. Well I hope Emma has one amazing Golden B-day. You need to be resting up for the big day, pack some extra powder and touch up stuff in a make up bag so you aren't stressed. At the make-up counter you can buy blotting paper, which comes in really handy when you are starting to sweat from stress. Just enjoy their magical day. Leanne's pie does sound good. Happy Friday.

  4. Lizzy,
    This blog isn't all about the food:) I will be sharing wedding pics, after the wedding!

    Even though this breakfast bake is healthy, it tastes so good. Even Scott, who usually doesn't like the "healthy" foods, liked this. Like you said on your blog, don't tell them that it's healthy!
