Chocolate Quinoa Cake
Yesssss! Get ready to make the most chocolatey, moist, and dense cake you’ll ever eat in your life. And as an added bonus, it’s healthier than your average chocolate cake.
This cake is made with quinoa. Not quinoa flour. Just good old cooked quinoa. Quinoa, if you aren’t already familiar with it, is an ancient grain. It’s considered a super food, being a source of complete protein, high in fiber, and a good source of phosphorus, magnesium, iron, and calcium.
With that being said, you can make and eat this incredibly decedent cake with less guilt than you would with a regular white flour chocolate cake.
