Banana walnut quinoa hot cereal

Found a cherry almond quinoa recipe from Healthy Girl but didn't have either so I came up with this one :)

Banana walnut quinoa hot cereal Simply Filling +1pp for the walnuts
1 serving

1/4c uncooked quinoa
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1/2c skim milk
1 cup water
1/4c egg whites
sweetener to taste
1 small banana sliced leaving a few to put on top
5g walnuts bits

Put quinoa, cinnamon, vanilla, skim milk and water in a non stick pot and bring to boil then reduce to a simmer. Stirring continuously, slowly add egg whites.
Cook and stir until thickened and creamy 14-16 minutes.
Stir in sweetener and banana. Put extra slices of banana on top and walnuts.
Let sit until cooler and thickened.
Enjoy!

Would it taste OK without the egg whites? I'm not sure I can get past the egg white texture in the recipe. I can't eat runny eggs!!

You actually can't taste them at all but it gives you protein to stay satisfied for quite a while. It just increases the volume and makes them really creamy. Honestly you can't taste it
