“I have not heard of Quinoa before, but after I discover it, I fell in love with this unique grain. High in protein and fiber and it is very tasty! This recipe uses regular sugar or you can make it sugar free, by using xylitol. If you have not heard of xylitol (Xylitol is not only a safe, natural sweetener without the bad side-effects of sugar and artificial substitutes, it's also good for your teeth, stabilizes insulin and hormone levels, and promotes good health. I get my xylitol at Ebay or your favorite health store. The quinoa makes a wonderful moist bread, loads of flavor. I find the best bananas to use are the nice and ripe ones! IMPORTANT NOTICE: Please do not give your pets anything made with xylitol. It is good for people, but toxic for animals.”
