I invented this yummy snack to satisfy sweet cravings when on a diet or cleanse – very little calories and really healthy ingredients.



Ingredients (for a small casserole about 25 x 15 cm):



  • 200 g puffed quinoa
  • 2 tablespoon coconut oil
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon cardamom
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 5 drops essential orange oil
  • 150 g dark couverture




Melt the dark couverture and the coconut oil in a double boiler. Add cinnamon, cardamom and salt and stir to combine.

Flavor with essential orange oil. When it starts to cool down, stir in the quinoa popcorn.

Fill into a casserole lined with cling film and allow to cool completely.

Cut with a sharp knife into small squares and store in a cool, dry place.

TIP: Instead of the quinoa you can also use any other type of puffed grain such as spelt, millet or amaranth.
