Quinoa brownies




1/2 cup of quinoa

1 cup of water

1/2 cup of sugar (or appropriate amount of stevia)

1/2 cup of cocoa

1/4 cup of milk or 3/4 cups of coconut milk

2 eggs

2 tablespoons of coconut oil (if dairy milk is used)

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder

Icing sugar for decoration

Cooking Instructions

Cook 1/2 cup of quinoa with 1 cup of water in a pot on the stove. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer until the quinoa is cooked and the water has cooked off. Let the quinoa sit in a bowl to cool. Preheat the oven to 350 F and grease a rectangular baking pan with coconut oil. Mix cooked quinoa with all other ingredients in a blender for two minutes until the mixture is smooth. Pour the mixture into the baking pan and cook in the oven for 35 - 40 minutes. The brownies are ready when a wooden stick can be inserted and removed from the brownie without any moist and sticky dough. Let cool and cut into squares. Dust with icing sugar before serving.
