  1. Crunchy Black Sesame Quinoa Cereal *Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. *Line 2 baking sheet with parchment or a silpat. *In a large bowl add the quinoa, almonds, cashews, sesame seeds and flax seeds. *Stir in the honey, coconut oil, vanilla extract, instant coffee and a pinch of salt, mix well. *Dump the mixture out over the 2 prepared baking sheets and spread evenly. *Bake for 35-50 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes until lightly golden brown all over. *Remove from the oven and allow to cool before storing.
  2. To Make The Coconut Banana Oats *Mix together the oats, 1/2 cup coconut milk, chia seeds, vanilla and salt in a small bowl. *Cover and place in the fridge for for at least 30 minutes or preferably overnight (now is when I would make the quinoa cereal). *The next morning, add the mixture to a blender along with the remaining 1/2 cup coconut milk and banana. Blend until smooth and creamy.
  3. To Assemble The Bowl *Pour the creamy oats into a bowl. *Top with the crunchy quinoa cereal, sliced mango and chopped chocolate. *Add some mint and a drizzle of chocolate coconut butter or coconut butter if desired. Eat!

What Our Clients Say*

During my FitLife transformation, I lost 70 pounds! That's why I signed up for the protocol, but the most exciting result is that I found ME in the process. I had been hiding under a pile of pounds, self-doubt, and grief! FitLife changed my life and I knew I had to share it with others.

-Lynne, Longwood FL

I started with Fitlife back in 2011-2012…I wrote into Fitlife asking for an extreme amount of help. I was 300 pounds, with high cholesterol, and Drew helped me transform my life. I lost over 130 pounds and I no longer have high cholesterol. Not only did I lose weight, so did my husband, who lost over 70 pounds!
