Ingredient Notes

Peanut butter: Use creamy peanut butter without additives for the best results. When you’re ready to switch up the flavor profile of these quinoa bites, feel free to swap the peanut butter for any nut or seed butter of your choosing.

Maple syrup: Maple syrup adds a small amount of additional sweetness, but feel free to omit it if you prefer. Alternatively, you can use agave syrup, vegan honey, or honey if not vegan.

Vanilla extract: A subtle hint of vanilla enhances the chocolate and peanut butter flavors. If you do not have any on hand, it is okay to do without if need be.

Salt: A pinch of salt brings out all of the flavor notes.

Quinoa puffs: Puffed quinoa is simply quinoa that has been popped, much like popcorn kernels. The result is a texture reminiscent of rice crispies, adding a nice crunch along with all the nutritional benefits of quinoa.
