    Quinoa has amazing health benefits. I have been wishing to experiment with quinoa but when Place of Origin sent me a pack of Quinoa under the BellyNirvana program with Plattershare, I was absolutely thrilled. Not only Quinoa, they also sent me a pack of Oman Dates. With both the ingredients, I was excited to experiment Quinoa brownies which I was eyeing for a long time now.

    This is my first experiment with Quinoa as an ingredient. Quinoa is categorized into whole grains, however, it is a seed. Healthy snacks prepared with Quinoa are naturally gluten free, cholesterol free, and are of high protein. Quinoa can be prepared like rice or barley.

    Chocolate Quinoa Brownies

    I try my every possible bit to remove white sugar from my bakes. In fact, I have written a whole article of 20 different sugar substitute and among them my favorite is dates. And this is what I also try to teach during my healthy teacakes and muffins workshop.

    For this recipe of eggless brownie, I used the dates to make date puree and used it as a substitute for sugar in my quinoa brownie recipe. The date syrup acted as a natural sweetener and made quinoa brownies sugar free.

    This superfood, a seed considered as grain, is higher in nutrients than most grains. 100 grams of cooked quinoa carries about 120 calories. Cooked quinoa is a combination of 72% water, 21.3% carbohydrates, 4.4% of proteins, and 1.92% of fat.

    With more than 2000 varieties, dates are cultivated across the globe. Dates are rich in sugar and are high in calories. Certainly good to act as a replacement for sugar in many baking recipes. Dates are a good source of potassium, fiber, and antioxidants.

    Dates and water

    In a saucepan, add dates and water. Bring them to boil and let them cook on medium heat until reduced to half. Then turn off the flame.

    Date syrup

    Let it cool completely. Blend it in a blender and then strain the Puree. You can refrigerate it in any glass jar up to one week and can use as a sugar substitute to bake healthy date brownies, cakes or muffins.

    Date Puree

    To make quinoa flour brownies, dry roast the quinoa seeds and powdered them. Roasting is important as it helps to remove the earthen flavors from raw seeds.

    Roasted quinoa

    Sift the powdered quinoa to get smooth quinoa flour. This flour is the base of our brownies. There are a number of benefits of quinoa as mentioned above.

    Quinoa Powder

    In a saucepan take dark chocolate and butter. Melt it on low flame.

    Melted chocolate

    In a large mixing bowl, take quinoa flour, Baking powder, and Cocoa powder. Whisk all the dry ingredients well.

    Flour and cocoa

    Add prepared date syrup and melted Chocolate. Mix all the ingredients well. Meanwhile, keep the oven for preheating at 160 °C for 10 minutes.

    Thick and smooth batter

    Let’s Bake

    Line a baking mold with parchment paper and pour the prepared batter of brownies into it. With the help of a spatula, smoothen the top. Bake these brownies in a preheated oven at 160 °C for 20 minutes.

    Batter before baking

    For brownies, you can’t rely on toothpick test. Brownies are best if gooey so you will never get a clean toothpick. I always prefer to bake brownies for 20 min. Once baked take the tin out of the oven. Let it rest for 5 minutes and then de-mould it. Slice the baked brownies and serve with a scoop of ice cream or drizzle some chocolate sauce on it.
