40 Quinoa Recipes You’ll Love



35. Quinoa Almond Joy Bars   
How does the candy bar song go? After this recipe, it will go, sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you feel like an almond nut quinoa bar. This dreamy candied quinoa dessert recipe is a definite keeper.

36. Quinoa Chocolate Drops 
Rolled like a truffle, these chocolates have dates for sweetness and almonds for some crunch. Dark chocolate adds decadence one can feel good about, because it’s rich in antioxidants.

37. Warm Quinoa Pudding
Rather than the typical rice pudding, this quinoa pudding is tasty and even more luscious than the original. Cinnamon, nutmeg, and dried fruit add warmth and sweetness in every scoop.

38. Honey Olive Quinoa Cake
No, olives are not used, but olive oil and honey are. This dense, moist olive oil cake introduces another healthful ingredient, spelt flour, with terrific-looking results.

39. Coconut Quinoa Pudding 
This pudding gets its creaminess from the coconut milk. Swap out the refined cane sugar for low-glycemic coconut palm sugar (sucanat or another natural sweetener such as maple syrup may also be used). Then, as the recipe calls for, sprinkle with coconut shavings or grated coconut and this is one yummy coconut quinoa pudding.

40. Gluten-Free Quinoa Brownies
With no processed flours and coconut palm sugar as the sweetener, this recipe gets our stamp of approval. Will be great for the whole family and friends, and not only those avoiding gluten for health reasons.

  1. It's hard to get sick of quinoa when there are just so many different options! Definitely trying out the chili this weekend

  2. I'm fascinated by this foods versatility. I'm a fairly new vegetarian and delving more into more diversified recipies. I'm trying to figure out how to use this to replace flour, and flour really doesn't agree well with me.

    1. We love it, too, Enrique. You can try using quinoa flour. It can't completely replace wheat flour, but by using 1/2 and 1/2, you can cut down on the wheat flour.
