Quinoa Chocolate Cake

Chocolate cake.  One of those go-to, traditional, most loved desserts.  Certainly in my book, it is.  This chocolate cake though?  One of the best Ive ever sampled (up there with my sweet potato chocolate cake). This one however has zero grains/no gluten in it.  Its also lactose free.  And though it does contain some sugar, its with a far lower amount than usual cakes tend to have.

Dont be detoured by the ingredients list (this tends to be one of the first reasons I decide to forgo trying a recipe myself.  Too many ingredients or recipe steps).  I was pleasantly surprised by how easy this was to throw together.  And the moist, fudgy taste when finished baking?  Out of this world.  SO yummy.  Almost guaranteed to become one of your new favorite sweet recipes.

Cocoa Quinoa Brownie Bites

Do you love the taste of raw brownie batter?  Or fudge?  Or Crunch bars?  If yes to any of the previous questions, then this dessert is for you.  However unlike brownie batter, Crunch bars or fudge, all of which are loaded with sugar, calories and dairy, these are grain-free, dairy-free and sugar-free.

They also take just 5 minutes to make.

How bout that 😉

PS.  Sometimes I just pour the chocolatey brownie-like batter onto the puffed quinoa and eat it like that straight out of the bowl.  Tastes EXACTLY like brownie batter, but without all the bad-for-your-body ingredients.  No guilt and major deliciousness.
