TOASTED QUINOA & COCONUT CHOCOLATE BARK

November 19, 2018 by Renee Tavoularis

TOASTED QUINOA & COCONUT CHOCOLATE BARK

Toasted, crispy quinoa is an unexpected addition to a favorite holiday sweet. The popular grain also adds a nutty flavor and a healthy dose of fiber.

SERVES 4-6
15 MINUTES PLUS 20 MINUTES CHILL TIME
GLUTEN-FREE
VEGAN

Ingredients

12 ounces vegan dark chocolate, roughly chopped
¼ cup quinoa, rinsed and drained
¼ cup unsweetened, shredded coconut, toasted

Instructions

  • Toast the quinoa in a large skillet over medium heat, stirring frequently until quinoa begins to pop, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.
  • In a double boiler over medium-low heat, melt the chocolate until smooth, stirring frequently. Alternatively, heat the chocolate in the microwave in a microwave-safe bowl in 30 second intervals until smooth.
  • Pour the melted chocolate onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Use a knife or spatula to spread the chocolate into a thin layer.
  • Sprinkle the chocolate with the toasted quinoa and coconut. Let chill in the fridge for 20 minutes or until chocolate is set.
  • Break the bark into pieces and package in an airtight bag or container at cool room temperature for up to 10 days.
