I love cooking with quinoa flakes because it gives food, especially puddings, a great thick texture (plus, its quinoa, I mean, come on is).


25g quinoa flakes
Vanilla Rooibos tea
5g psyllium husks
8g 100% cocoa
1 scoop chocolate whey


1. I boiled 20g of quinoa flakes in Vanilla Rooibos tea (I know that sounds odd but it gives it a nice Vanilla smokey undertone).

2. In a bowl, I then combined 5g of psyllium husks, 8g of 100% cocoa, and 1 scoop of chocolate whey. When the quinoa were cooked, I simply added them to the dry mixture and mixed it until it looked like pudding.

3. Topped with cinnamon (can’t ever get enough of it).

The result? A yummy chocolaty bowl of protein goodness.
