Prep Your Quinoa
In order to have good tasting bars, you need to prep your quinoa a bit beforehand. If the quinoa is not rinsed before use, it can sometimes have a bitter taste, which isn’t something you want in your chocolate bars. That’s why it’s best to make sure to rinse and drain your quinoa before starting out.
Melting chocolate can be done multiple ways. You can melt it in the microwave, however that can sometimes cause the chocolate to burn or splat all over your microwave. If you decide to melt it in the microwave make sure to melt it at 30 second intervals and stir in between each stop. Do so until all the chocolate is melted. The stove top method on the other hand gets the job done perfectly, but is slower. Here is how to do it. Place a pot of water and bring it to a boil, then reduce it to a simmer. Then place a metal bowl with chocolate over the top of the pot of water and fit it snugly. Finally, stir often until the chocolate is melted.
Add Some Seeds
Who said you have to put only quinoa? You can make a superfood bomb with these bars by adding more seeds such as nuts, flaxseed, chia seeds and so on. As we said, make this recipe your own.
