Chocolate, Peanut Butter & Quinoa Squares

Anyone who knows me, knows Peanut Butter is my favourite thing ever. Combined with Chocolate makes it more indulgent and mixed with puffed Quinoa gives it a great crunch.

Ingredients (makes 16 squares):

For the base:

  • 75g puffed Quinoa
  • 1 tbsp smooth Peanut Butter (if it is a stiff Peanut Butter, melt in the microwave for 30 seconds)
  • 2 tbsp Maple Syrup
  • 1 tbsp Agave Syrup
  • 2 tsp hard Coconut Oil (melted)

Middle layer:

  • 3 heaped tbsp smooth Peanut Butter (again, if it is a stiff Peanut Butter, melt in the microwave for 1 minute)

Chocolate top:

  • 200g vegan Dark Chocolate

Method:

  1. In a medium bowl, mix together the Quinoa, Peanut Butter, Maple & Agave Syrup and Coconut oil
  2. Combine well until the Quinoa sticks well together
  3. Line a medium sized square tin with baking paper. Empty the Quinoa mixture into the tin and flatten with the back of a spoon until it reaches the edge of the tin and is level
  4. Place in the fridge for 10 minutes
  5. Then add the Peanut Butter and spread evenly
  6. Place in the fridge for 1-2 hours
  7. Once the Peanut Butter layer has set in the fridge, melt the Chocolate and pour on top of the Peanut Butter layer
  8. Make sure the Chocolate is evenly spread by lifting the tin and moving from side to side. Then use a knife to get the chocolate to the edges
  9. Let the Chocolate layer set in the fridge for 30 minutes
  10. Cut into squares and enjoy!

(The squares will need to be stored in the fridge)
