Prep Time:

Serves:

1

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup quinoa flakes
  • 1/4 cup fresh avocado, mashed
  • 1 flax egg (1 tablespoon freshly ground flax + 3 tablespoon water)
  • 8 almonds, smashed
  • 1 tablespoon coconut sugar (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon cacao powder
  • 1 tablespoon of chia seeds
  • handful of chocolate chunks

Instructions

  1. Prepare a 16oz. microwave/oven safe dish by oiling with a dab of coconut oil. Set aside. Drop all ingredients in a small bowl and mix until fully incorporated. Press mixture into prepare dish and even out with fork.
  2. Microwave option: Place in the microwave and cook for 3 1/2 minutes. You’ll know when it’s done when it rises slightly, is harder to the touch, and pulls away from the sides of the dish. Don’t bake it too long, or you’ll have a chocolate Frisbee!
  3. Oven option: Place in a preheated oven at 350F and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  4. Allow to rest for 1 minute before tipping over onto a plate and smothering with your favorite toppings.
