Sweet On Valentine’s Day

We love a good excuse to make something sweet for someone else. And when we can use one of our favorite ingredients – quinoa – our mouths really start watering. Though it’s easy and tempting to grab a box of chocolates or heart shaped candies for your sweetie, why not swap out the store bought variety for something made from the heart?

After the main course is over and that sweet tooth is kicking in, keep these quinoa-based recipes in mind to compliment your after dinner coffee with your loved ones:

  1. Toasted Quinoa Chocolate Peanut Butter Truffle (pictured above)
  2. Gingerbread Quinoa Coffee Cake
  3. Quinoa and Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies
  4. Quinoa Flour Ice Cream Cones
