Korean Fried Chicken Tacos with Sweet Slaw, Crunchy Noodles + Queso Fresco.
I made us something super delicious.
For breakfast, snack, or even lunch if you are feeling it.
It’s super crazy healthy, but so, so good and refreshing…especially if you live in a place where it is semi warm. Or at least NOT snowing.
Can’t say I live in that place, BUT…right now I am wishing I did.
So these bowls? They are so easy. Easy as in throw everything into a bowl the night before, blend the next morning and you’ll have breakfast ready to go in minutes. They may not be pancakes, but I am ok with that because they are such a gooood bowl.
You should also know, I love pancakes, so this is saying a lot.
Before anything though, you have to start with a batch of Crunchy Black Sesame Quinoa Cereal.
It’s sort of like granola, but a little less caloric per cup, and crazy crunchy and delicious. Actually, the stuff is addicting, and eaten with some milk? So good, so my kind of snack. Good thing the recipe makes a lot. You’ll want some for these bowls and some to just plop in with milk.
But back to the bowls. Lots of texture going on.
Creamy from the oats and crunchy from the cereal. The best of both worlds if you ask me. Plus, there is even a little chew from the oats paired with the just right sweet flavor from the mangos. Oh, and the mint? The mint finishes the bowl off with that perfect pop of springtime freshness.
The coconut flavor is super subtle, but adds just the right amount of tropical flare and pairs awesomely with the mango, but if you can’t do coconut just use almond milk instead.
And of course, there is some chocolate too.
Because what’s breakfast without a little chocolate?
Sorry for the short and sweet post today. My mind had no stories to tell today, so I figured why try to type things that have no meaning and will probably annoy you to death? Thinking short and sweet is better than long, irritating and pointless.
My only point for the day – you need to give these bowls a try. The are easy, almost completely make ahead, and out of this world healthy and delicious. Perfect for any morning, snack or light meal. Also, make sure you go for the cereal. Best cereal ever.

Don’t skip the coconut butter drizzle either, it’s the best.
I am confused. Why does this show a serving size of 8 ?
Hi Jeanne! That is how many servings this recipe will make! I hope you try this!
Hey Jeanne, this will serve between 2-4 people with extra granola. Please let me know if you have any other questions. I hope you love this recipe. Thanks so much! xTieghan
I’m an absolute fan of coconut. I look for ways to add it in everything. This has to be the best smoothie bowl recipe i’ve ever tried! I made it last year and as you said, it does make a lot. I began craving this recipe again and somehow managed to find it on the internet. This time around though, I’ll have to tweak it a bit with winter fruits.
I am so glad you loved this Sneha! Thank you!
I really want to try this while the weather is hot but I actually have a bunch of questions about the cereal aspect:
Is the 3.25 cups of quinoa from about 1 cup dry? And did you use red quinoa or is that just the colour from being baked/toasted?
Do you think maple syrup could be subbed for the honey?
And one last thing (sorry!) – you mean whole, not ground, flax right?
Thank you so much 🙂
Hi! Use 1 1/2 cups dry quinoa to yield 3 1/4 cup cooked quinoa. Yes, I think maple will be great! And yes, whole flax seeds! Let me know if you have other questions. 🙂
