1¼cups230 g cooked quinoa (2/3 cup/ 115 g raw quinoa cooked in water for about 20 minutes)
2/3cup60 g raw cacao powder
2large110 g eggs
2teaspoons10 g vanilla extract
½teaspoon2.5 g salt
¼teaspoon1 g baking soda
½cup150 g maple syrup
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a 10½ x 8-inch brownie tray with parchment paper.
Melt the chocolate over very gentle heat with the oil and almond butter.
Add all the ingredients (including the chocolate mix) to a food processor. Blend until well combined. The quinoa will break down slightly but not completely, which is what gives a really nice texture to thebrownies.
Pour the batter into the prepared tray and smooth the top.
Bake for approximately 20 minutes; the brownies should still be slightly sticky when you take themout. Let cool in the pan and slice into eight equal portions.
