Chocolate & Puffed Quinoa Krispie Treats

quinoa crispy cakes

There’s nothing better than baking with your kids, but baking with healthy ingredients and teaching them all about it is even better. I remember as a kid we used to make Rice Krispie cakes but of course with melted Dairy Milk and actual Rice Krispies! This is a healthier take on that and you won’t feel guilty giving these snacks to your kids – they are full of goodness and are still yummy. The kids will be happy and their blood sugar levels won’t drastically drop like they would if you used artificial ingredients so it’s the best of both worlds. They are full of bioavailable plant-based protein – oh and they’re sooooo easy to make!

Ingredients

2 cups puffed quinoa (you can buy a box online or at your local health shop)
1 x chocolate sauce recipe

Method

First make the chocolate sauce as per above recipe.

Once it’s made and ready in the saucepan, add your puffed quinoa to a medium sized bowl and pour the chocolate over. Mix well until combined.

Place muffin cases in a cupcake baking tray and add a few spoonfuls of the mixture to each one (as much as it takes to fill them to the top) then simply place the tray in the freezer for about 45 minutes.

Now all you have to do is make sure there is no fighting over who gets to lick the bowl!

Enjoy!

Love,
