Quinoa Brownie and Frosting

Quinoa Brownie


1 cup cooked quinoa

1 cup pitted dates

1/4 cup cocoa powder

2 tablespoons almond butter

1 teaspoon vanilla extract



1/4 cup peanut butter (or 2 tbsp. almond butter & 2 tbsp. tahini)

2 tablespoons maple syrup

1 tablespoon coconut butter (melted)

Preheat your oven to 350.  Blend up all brownie ingredients in a food processor or blender until incorporated and smooth.  It will be thick.  Using a spatula, spread into a small baking dish (I used one of those little rectangle Pyrex® containers).  Mixture will be very sticky.  Bake for 20 minutes.
While brownies are baking, stir together the frosting ingredients in a small bowl.  It will be ready to spread on the brownies shortly after they come out of the oven.  Store in the fridge or freezer.
