Healthy Chocolate Quinoa Crackles: Cos kids shouldn’t have all the fun! (Gluten, Sugar Free and Vegan Option)

Throw back Thursday to a childhood party fav, chocolate crackles! This healthier version takes under 5 minutes and is only 3 ingredients! Quinoa is rich in protein, containing all nine essential amino acids. It’s full of fibre, iron and magnesium so these treats are really nutritious 😊

  • 2 cups puffed quinoa (buy or see below for how to make your own)
  • 1/2 cup desiccated coconut
  • 100g dark chocolate (I use naturally sweetened brands) dairy free for vegan
  • Optional add ins: nuts, seeds & dried fruit

1. Melt chocolate in a bowl in 30 second intervals

2. Once melted mix in quinoa and coconut

3. Spoon mixture into patties

Puffed quinoa

  • 2 cups quinoa seeds
  • Optional 1tbsp oil (gives a delicious flavour!)

1. Heat a non stick pan or pot over medium heat (add oil if using)

2. Add quinoa and spread out in a single layer

3. Continue to move quinoa around so it doesn’t burn

4. It will start popping, take out when it’s just started to brown and there’s only a few seconds between each pop

Enjoy!
