Puffed Quinoa, Coconut & Chocolate Squares
These Puffed Quinoa, Coconut & Chocolate Squares are my healthy take on the classic rice krispy squares that you no doubt made as a kid. Yes, they may be a healthier alternative but they're still just as delicious, sweet, crispy and more-ish!
I made them with Indigo Herbs new puffed quinoa which is just 100% organic puffed quinoa - nothing added, nothing taken away. The quinoa is a great alternative to rice as it's much higher in protein, it's easier to digest and it doesn't play havoc with our blood sugar levels! It also gives an even more wonderful texture to these crispy squares and works perfectly with the coconut and chocolate.
To make these Puffed Quinoa, Coconut & Chocolate Squares I simply picked the puffed quinoa and desiccated coconut together, made a chocolate mixture then mixed it all together, placed in a tray and left to set for 40 minutes in the fridge. So simple, but so good!
I've worked with Indigo Herbs to bring you this indulgent recipe, and used their cacao powder, cacao butter, raw almond butter, coconut oil and maple syrup to make these chocolatey squares! I've been using Indigo Herbs products for a long time and truly trust the brand - their products are of the highest quality without the mammoth expensive! I also love that Indigo Herbs has every healthy baking ingredient I could ever need on their website, it makes shopping so much easier knowing I can get it all from the same place!
