    i am amazed at how gooey these are!! Like no other bean brownies I’ve ever seen.

    And I think it’s good that you’re getting back to blogging. It will help take your mind off things, for sure.

      It might be tough because the base is quinoa and black beans so you need something a bit sweeter but you could try honey or agave but up the amount of quinoa flour.

        Thanks! How much extra quinoa do you think I should add?

        Thinking maybe 2 tablespoons? Try that and see how wet the mixture is and let us know how this works because I would prefer to use agave or honey myself!

    These look wonderful! Silly question – I’ve read that usually one has to rinse off the quinoa to get rid of some bitter taste – if you’re grinding it down do you first rinse, dry out, and then grind into a flour or just skip the rinsing? Thanks!

      Hi! No not a silly question. Typically if you are only eating the quinoa alone and cooking it you will rinse it to prevent it from being slightly bitter from the saponins, a coating that plants produce to keep insects form eating it. When grinding I forgo that step in order make the flour because I want it dry – when it is mixed into the recipe you won’t taste any bitterness at all!
