Quinoa Brownies

Quinoa is really good for you, the first time I had Quinoa was when we visited our daughter and son in Florida. I had some type of Middle Eastern dish and it was delicious. I then decided to make some at home and now Quinoa is a staple in my pantry. I am not a vegan, nor is anyone in the house but I saw this recipe thought it sounded pretty good. This is another on my list to make!
1 cup Cooked Quinoa
1⁄4 cup Rolled Oats
1⁄2 cup Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
1 teaspoon Maple Syrup
2⁄3 cups Sugar
3 tablespoons Butter 
1⁄2 cup Butternut Squash (peeled and cubed), you can substitute unsweetened applesauce
1⁄3 cup Vanilla Almond Milk (or regular + 1 tsp vanilla)
2 tablespoons Cocoa Powder
4 tablespoons Ground Flax
1 cup Dark Chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Cook butternut squash - either over the stovetop or in the microwave. 
  3. Add almond milk to the cooked butternut squash, and then puree with an immersion blender. 
  4. Add all ingredients into a medium mixing bowl.
  5. Spray a 9x9 glass baking pan with non-stick spray.
  6. Pour in the brownie batter and cook for 25 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
