Sugar-Free Puffed Quinoa and Cacao Nib Chocolate Bars [Vegan, Gluten-Free]

Calories

300

Serves

9

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup high-quality cocoa butter
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa mint syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 1 cup cacao powder
  • 1/4 cup puffed quinoa
  • 1/4 cup cacao nibs

Preparation

  1. Set aside a silicon mold. Put the cacao powder in a large glass measuring cup. Set aside.
  2. In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, gently melt the cocoa butter and coconut oil with the cocoa mint syrup. Once the mixture is melted, remove pan from the heat and whisk in the vanilla and peppermint extracts.
  3. Pour mixture into the measuring cup with the cacao powder, and whisk until it is thoroughly incorporated and a rich, dark brown. Taste and adjust sweetness to your liking.
  4. Stir in the puffed quinoa and cacao nibs. Divide the mixture between 9 molds and refrigerate until set, less than one hour.

Notes

There are brands of cocoa mint syrup out there sweetened with stevia, which would make this recipe entirely sugar free. If you can't find them or simply don't want to go that route, you could use a vegan chocolate syrup instead and forgo the mint – or just add additional peppermint extract.

After you pour the chocolate into the molds, sprinkle a little extra puffed quinoa and cacao nibs on top.

I was into my 30s before I began running and working out, but I was still missing something: diet.  The animal products I was consuming were undoing the benefits of all of that physical activity.  Today my body runs on a plant-based, low-fat, low sugar diet that keeps me healthy and strong. I’m sharing – via An Unrefined Vegan – what I’ve learned by offering simple, delicious and nutritious recipes that nurture body, soul and conscience.

I don\'t see the puffed quinoa in the ingredient list. How much? Do you buy puffed quinoa in the cereal section? Do you make it from scratch?
