180 quinoa chocolate brownies

Stu: If you love chocolate brownies you will NOT believe how good these taste! My wife and kids made them for me on Saturday and I’ve been devouring the slices every single day. They tick all of my boxes (yes I’m fussy), with no hidden ingredients and the benefit of protein and fibre from the Superfood Blend. I’ll be requesting another batch of these amazing quinoa chocolate brownies this weekend 🙂


  • 2 cups of cooked white quinoa (rinse it first)
  • 1 cup of water
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup of full-fat coconut cream
  • 1/2 cup of psyllium husk
  • 1/2 cup of 180 Superfood Protein Blend (chocolate)
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup of rice malt syrup
  • 3/4 – 1 cup Cacao powder
  • 1 & 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp pink/sea salt


Rinse the quinoa first, then bring the quinoa and water to the boil in a medium saucepan. Cover, reduce to a simmer and cook for 10 min. Turn off the heat and leave covered for another 10 min. Fluff with a fork and let it cool down. Pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees celsius. Get a large sized brownie tray/tin ready for the mixture.

Combine the coconut cream, water, eggs, vanilla in a blender or food processor. Add the quinoa, the coconut oil and continue to blend it all up. Whisk the other dry ingredients together then add the wet ingredients to the dry and combine. If the mixture seems too dry add a little more water.

Pour into a shallow brownie tray/tin and bake for about 35 min. Check the brownie at 25 min (put a dry knife int the middle, it shouldn’t be wet when you take it out) and then add another 10min if needed. Keep an eye on it!

Slice it up, take it to work and make your friends jealous 🙂
