Mini Chocolate Berry Quinoa Cakes

Hello there! It’s been a while.

This is a recipe I have been making for years. I came up with it in Ecuador after experimenting with gluten free baking. There weren’t really any gluten free flour options back then, so I started making my own mixes.

This one is really nice because it uses freshly cooked quinoa! So yummy and healthy!

Dry:

1/2C brown rice flour (brown rice blended into a flour 😉
1C cooked quinoa
1/4C cacao powder
2t baking powder
1/2t baking soda
pinch of salt

Wet:

1C mashed banana
2 lineseed eggs (blend 2TBS lineseeds with 8TBS of water)
2TBS cacao butter melted
2TBS coconut suger (optional if you like it extra sweet)

Extra’s:

berries
chopped cacao paste

 

  • Blend all the wet ingredients into a smooth paste. Add a bit of water for the blending to start.
  • Mix wet & Dry
  • Add some berries to the dough mix
  • Chop cacao paste and add into the mix
  • Pour dough mix into a bread/cake/cupcake mould, and distribute berries on top.

 

Bake for 40 minutes at 180 degrees Celcius.
