Maca Quinoa Power Fudge
While fudge is almost always served as a dessert item‚ this recipe uses Maca‚ quinoa flour‚ cooked quinoa and Cacao Powder‚ easily doubling its use as an energy bar.
Coconut oil spray
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat an 8 × 8–inch square baking dish with coconut oil spray.
Sift flour, Cacao Powder, Maca Powder and salt into a large bowl. After sifting, add Coconut Palm Sugar. Set aside.
Add the coconut oil and chocolate to a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds, remove and stir. Heat for an additional 30 seconds, remove and stir. If the mixture is not completely melted, microwave in 15-second increments, making sure not to burn it. Set aside.
Whisk the soymilk, vanilla, egg and egg yolks in a medium bowl until combined. Add the melted chocolate and whisk until the liquids are well combined.
Add the liquid mix to the flour mix and whisk until smooth. Fold in the quinoa, walnuts and coconut until well incorporated.
Pour the batter into the baking dish and place in the oven.
Bake for 15 minutes or until set. Let cool and cut into 2x2-inch squares.
