Several weeks ago I needed several new yummy and exciting recipes to take on a trip. I decided to try these Quinoa Brownies, courtesy of A Nourished Family 

I couldn't believe how much healthy goodness was packed into these tiny little brownies! If you are a health nut like myself, I highly recommend you try these little boogers! 

Quinoa Brownies

  • 1 cup Cooked Quinoa
  • 1⁄4 cup Rolled Oats
  • 1⁄2 cup Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Maple Syrup
  • 2⁄3 cups Coconut Sugar
  • 3 tablespoonsButter
  • 1⁄2 cup Butternut Squash Puree
  • 1⁄3 cup Vanilla Almond Milk (or regular + 1 tsp vanilla)
  • 2 tablespoons Cocoa Powder
  • 4 tablespoons Ground Flax
  • 1 cup Dark Chocolate chips (make sure to use vegan choc chips if you are strictly vegan)
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cook butternut squash - either over the stovetop or in the microwave. (I cooked mine in the microwave -- added 1/3 cup water and microwaved for 4 minutes. Then drained). Add almond milk to the cooked butternut squash, and then puree with an immersion blender. Add all ingredients into a medium mixing bowl.Spray a 9x9 glass baking pan with non-stick spray. Pour in the brownie batter and cook for 25 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.Enjoy with a glass of almond milk! (optional)
