Choc quinoa cookie cake- in one minute!
Something ridiculously exciting might just be about to go down...waiting on a final email. Will have to leave you in suspense there- but i'll be sure to update you in the next few days once things are confirmed!
Anyway, I'm all a bit excitable and so was browsing my photos of recipes not yet posted and found this one I'd forgotten about- the photos were taken back in August but I've made this little snack a few more times since as its so quick… Seriously I can't believe I had not come up with this a long time before!
I love my single serve microwave breakfast cookies and hadn't made one a while, but since I was going through such a quinoa phase it suddenly occurred to me to switch it around and make a super speedy quinoa microwave cooking. It was fantabulous!
Not the pickup in your fingers kind of cookie, but more of a soft and fancy dessert cookie designed to be eaten off the plate it's served from...maybe added a dollop of coconut or cashew cream! Feel free to add extra mixing as you fancy.
Recipe: 1-minute choc quinoa cookie cake
Makes: one single serve
- 1tbs peanut butter
- 1tbs cocoa
- 1tbs ground flax seed
- 1 tbs agave syrup (or a few drops stevia)
- 2 tbs water
- 1/4 cup cooked quinoa
- sprinkle of chia seeds- optional (or other toppings)
Mix all ingredients (other than quinoa) together to form a thick smooth paste. Add the quinoa last and coat evenly. Spoon into a flattened cookie shape onto the serving plate (make sure it's microwaveable) Smooth the top with the back of a wet spoon if necessary.
Cook for 60-80 seconds in the microwave until firm to touch. The cookie with be soft and fudgey and eaten from the plate. It's not a pick up in your hands type!
o there you have it, a little plateful of power food that literally took one minute to mix and one minute to cook in the microwave- simply can't go wrong there. Obviously this could also be made in the oven if microwaving is not your thing and you had a little extra time on your hands... But for my 'one-minute' mind this was the perfect satisfying answer.
