Ingredients :

    • 1/2 cup Uncooked Gogo White Royal Quinoa (soaked in cold water)
    • 1/2 cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
    • 1/3 cup Maple Syrup (or liquid sweetener of choice)
    • 1/4 cup Almond Butter (or peanut butter)
    • 2 medium Ripe Bananas
    • 1/4 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
    • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
    • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract

        Preparation :

        1. Start by soaking the uncooked quinoa in cold water. Allow it to sit for a minimum of 15 minutes, then drain it.
        2. Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F) and prepare a 23 cm (9-inch) square baking pan by lining it with parchment paper and lightly greasing it with coconut oil.
        3. In a high-speed blender, combine the soaked and drained quinoa, mashed bananas, almond milk, baking powder, unsweetened cocoa powder, maple syrup, and almond butter.
        4. Blend everything on high speed for about 30 seconds or until you have a creamy and smooth brownie batter. The batter should be relatively liquid, not too thick. Use a spatula to scrape down the sides of the blender if necessary.
        5. Pour the flourless brownie batter into the prepared baking pan. If desired, you can sprinkle additional chocolate chips on top.
        6. Bake the quinoa brownies in the preheated oven for 17 to 19 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with almost no crumbs. Be careful not to overbake.
        7. Once the brownies are done, remove them from the oven and allow them to cool for about 30 minutes on a wire rack.
        8. Once the brownies have cooled, cut them into 16 squares. You can serve them plain or add a drizzle of melted chocolate, peanut or almond butter, coconut icing, or protein frosting for extra flavor.

        Enjoy your delicious quinoa, banana, and chocolate brownies!
