Fudgy Quinoa Brownies | Brownies without the guilt or cruelty, what could be better?

I was still new the world of blogging, slowly navigating the world of gluten-free cooking. I of course loved all things quinoa, but was feeling stuck in my same old saute ways. Then I discovered Cooking Quinoa. What an amazing collection of recipes. I had found my inspiration and was ready to get in the kitchen. Now that I’ve found my groove with my lovely little quinoa friend, I’m not afraid to experiment. Whether its desserts, sushi or a salad, quinoa can be the star of any dish. Even in a fudgy chocolate brownie. This recipe was an accidental success. Don’t you love when that happens? Most people would say, “Hold all the good stuff”. So I added some good stuff. Why not try a brownie? The result is downright sinful. Moist and tender, but with the feeling of a light-richness. Whipped up with natural sweetness, this brownie is simply decadent. Whisk the dry ingredients + ½ teaspoon stevia (minus the quinoa) in a medium mixing bowl. In a small microwave safe bowl, melt the carob chips and coconut oil. Beat the eggs in a second small bowl. Add the vanilla, milk and melted chocolate, mixing to combine. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until a smooth batter forms. Stir in the cooked quinoa and transfer to the baking dish. Bake in the center of a warm oven until the brownies are set, 15 - 20 minutes.
