Even though we might be coming up on the holiday of love (ya know, the big V-day?!) and chocolate is pretty much expected, I'm of the mind that we should really be eating chocolate every day! You can never go wrong with chocolate.

As I'm sure you've gathered from the other sweets I've shared on SQ, my goal is to make them as healthy as possible while still making sure they're decadent and delicious. Healthy ≠ flavorless.

Luckily there are loads of other bloggers who agree and also share deletable and nutritious sweets. AND they use quinoa – woot! So today I'm giving you 14 of my absolute chocolate quinoa recipes from some of my fave bloggers. Hope you enjoy!

  1. Hey Alyssa! Thanks so much for having a great site on recipes with Quinoa!
    I tried the Superfood Chocolate Quinoa Bark from Half Baked Harvest this past week; it was so yummy, that I just made another batch this afternoon! My family really likes it! Recipes like these are the ones that we can feel good about serving vs. a batch of junk-filled cookies. I really appreciate what you’re doing! Keep it up!


    • So glad to hear you enjoyed it, Sarah! I have yet to try it but have been thinking about it ever since I put this round up together. Hope you get a chance to try even more! xo
