Wholesome Mini Cacao Berry Quinoa Cakes

Hello there!

I decided to start blogging on Chocoláctica.nl in an effort to share more with you. Chocoláctica is my main project but I love spending time in the kitchen and over the years I have developed so many recipies I could write a cooking book….hmmm, maybe I should?

Anyway, I love looking for recipies and trying them out, so as a thank you I also share my recipies for other people to try out. I think in this way internet is indeed an amazing platform where knowledge, experience and ideas can be shared.

This is a recipe I have been making for years. I came up with it while still living in  Ecuador, experimenting with gluten free baking. There weren’t really any gluten free flour options back then, so I started making my own mixes.

This one is really nice because it uses freshly cooked quinoa and brown rice! So yummy and healthy!


1/2C brown rice flour (brown rice blended into a flour 
1C cooked quinoa
1/4C cacao powder
2t baking powder
1/2t baking soda

1C mashed banana

2TBS cacao butter melted
2TBS coconut suger (optional if you like it extra sweet)
