2-ingredient Chocolate Quinoa Crunch Bites

If you like chocolate and you like crunchy treats, then you NEED these 2-ingredient chocolate quinoa crunch bites in your life! 

2-ingredient Chocolate Quinoa Crunch Bites

I’ve been really stressed out recently with clinic work and assessments, so I’ve been craving ALL THE CHOCOLATE! I know it’s not the best thing to eat to nourish your body during periods of high level stress, but my God does chocolate help my soul and mental well being! It becomes my bestest friend πŸ˜› 

I almost feel like chocolate is the only thing getting me by right now! It’s sad to say, but it’s definitely the highlight of my day (the rhyme wasn’t intentional, promise haha!).

My chocolate crunch doughnuts have been my most popular recipe of all time (so far). You guys seemed to have fallen head over heals in love with it! I can totally see why though, it’s one of my favourite recipes too and it’s so simple. It doesn’t get easier than a 3-ingredient recipe. 

Oh wait…actually…it does! 

Allow me to introduce you to these deliciously, crunchy and addictive chocolate quinoa crunch bites using only 2 ingredients. Yes…ONLY. TWO. INGREDIENTS. As you may have already figured out, the recipe couldn’t be simpler to make. It’s literally quinoa pops folded in melted chocolate and shaped into bites. The crunch in them makes them so addictive and satisfying. Exactly what I need right now. They’re my current favourite study snack, no doubt about that! 

I don’t think I really need to say anything else about these beauties to convince you to try them. Just have a look at them. You know you want them. So GO! Go make them now!! πŸ˜€ 


2-ingredient Chocolate Quinoa Crunch Bites

Ingredients:

200g (7oz) dark chocolate, malted – I used 70% dark chocolate 
35g (1 1/2 cups) quinoa pops

Method:

Melt the chocolate and leave to cool for a couple of minutes, then fold in the quinoa pops. 
Use a small ice cream scoop to shape into small bite, and arrange onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. 
Move to the fridge and allow to set for 15-30 minutes. 
Enjoy!

      I got them from Amazon, there’s a link in the ingredients list. You should be able to find them in health shops also πŸ™‚

  1. Chocolate and quinoa are an unlikely pair, but they definitely complement each other superbly! These remind me of those chocolate clusters that include pumpkin seeds, almonds, coconut, or pretzels that are just far too easy to finish in an entire bag. I definitely would enjoy more than one piece of these quinoa crunch bites–they look too irresistible!

      I used shop bought quinoa pops, not plain dried quinoa. It’s like rice puffs/rice krispies. You can get it from Amazon and health shops.

  2. I just made these and they are so quick and easy. Great to grab one from the bag in the freezer. Found puffed quinoa at Walmart!

      1. Oh Nadia, these look delicious and very moreish. Is it possible to pop some quinoa in an air popcorn maker? πŸ€”Or am I being silly 🀭

  3. You can puff your own quinoa quite easily. Rinse and dry your quinoa thoroughly, unless yours is pre-washed. Heat a heavy pan on medium heat. Add enough quinoa to just cover the surface of the pan. No oil needed. Stir continuously until most of the quinoa grains have popped (tiny little pops here) and turned light brown. Set aside to cool completely.

  4. I’ve read you can pop them in a skillet like popcorn (anyone remember Jiffy-Pop, or am I dating myself?!?). Haven’t actually tried doing it myself, but I plan to!
