Ingredients

Toasted Quinoa Croutons:

Power Bowl:

Directions

  1. For the croutons: Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. Line a 9-by-13-inch baking sheet with parchment paper, and spray with nonstick spray.
  2. Toss the oats with the quinoa, almonds, pumpkin seeds and salt in a large bowl. Add 1/2 cup coconut oil (if it has hardened in the jar, melt it in the microwave or on the stove over low heat) and agave. Toss until the mixture forms clumps; if it seems dry, add more coconut oil, 1 tablespoon at a time.
  3. Spread the crouton mixture onto the prepared baking sheet in a thin, even layer. Bake on the middle oven rack until light golden brown, about 45 minutes--it will feel sticky when just out of the oven but will crisp up as it cools. 
  4. Remove the baking sheet to a baking rack and let cool completely. Break into clusters. (Makes about 3 cups. Extra can be stored at room temperature in a tightly covered container for 3 days.)
  5. For the power bowl: Put the oats in a blender and blend until powder-like. Add the blueberries, banana, yogurt, pomegranate juice, honey, pomegranate molasses, lemon juice and orange zest. Blend until smooth.
  6. Transfer the mixture to a container with a tight-fitting lid and refrigerate for at least 8 hour and up to 24 hours. (This will help create a smoother consistency as the oats will absorb some of the liquid and become thicker.)
  7. To serve, divide the power bowl mixture between 2 bowls. Top with a dollop of yogurt, a few blueberries, some pomegranate seeds if using, and some quinoa croutons.
