Crispy Quinoa & Cashew Clusters

Crispy Quinoa & Cashew Clusters

A delicious, healthy snack you can feel good about!



1 tablespoons coconut oil

½ cup quinoa rinsed

½ cup salted cashews chopped

1 teaspoon sea salt

⅛ teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)

3 ½ ounces Dark Chocolate Bar



Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

Heat a skillet to medium heat. Add coconut oil and allow to melt. Add quinoa and cook, stirring often, for about 5 to 8 minute, until the seeds are golden brown. Transfer to a medium bowl and add in cashews, sea salt and cayenne pepper.

Place the chocolate in the top of a double broiler. (You can also use a metal bowl over a pot of boiling water) Heat until melted, stirring often to prevent burning. Be careful not to get any water into the chocolate!

When the chocolate is melted, add it to quinoa and cashew mixture and stir well until combined. Drop by spoonfuls onto prepared parchment paper. Place in the refrigerator for 15-20 minutes, until hardened.
