Easy 7-ingredient dark chocolate quinoa bowl, naturally sweetened with maple syrup and enriched with rich cocoa powder! A healthy, hearty, plant-based breakfast or snack.



  • 1 cup uncooked white quinoa
  • 1 cup < span class="wprm-recipe-ingredient-name"> unsweetened almond milk (and more to serve)
  • 1 < span class="wprm-recipe-ingredient-unit">cup Coconut milk (l canned or Carton drink)
  • 1 pinch Sea salt
  • 2 EL Cocoa powder unsweetened< /li>
  • 2-3 Soup Maple syrup or coconut sugar
  • 1/2 < span class="wprm-recipe-ingredient-unit">cc pure vanilla extract (optional)< /li>
  • 3-4 squares vegan dark chocolate (roughly chopped)< /li>< /ul>

FOR SERVING optional

  • Mixed berries
  • < li class="wprm-recipe-ingredients" style="list -style-type: disc;">Banana slices

  • Coconut Sugar
  • hemp seeds or chia seeds


  • Rinse the quinoa thoroughly in a fine-mesh colander for 2 minutes using your hands to sort and select remaining discolored chunks or pebbles.
  • Heat a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the rinsed and drained quinoa and toast for 3 minutes, stirring frequently to dry out the water, and lightly toast.
  • Add almond milk, coconut milk and a pinch of salt and stir. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to low and cook uncovered for 20 to 25 minutes, stirring occasionally. When it stops simmering, increase the heat to medium-low. Maintain a gentle simmer throughout cooking.
  • Once the liquid has been absorbed and the quinoa is tender, remove from the heat and Add cocoa powder, maple syrup and vanilla (optional). Stir to combine.
  • Flavour and adjust flavor as needed. If you prefer a finer texture, add a little more almond milk. I added more cocoa powder and maple syrup for a more intense chocolate flavor.
  • Serve each Bowl of quinoa with a small square of vegan dark chocolate and any toppings you want (see above). I prefer mine with a little more coconut milk, hemp seeds, and fresh fruit (optional).
  • Preferably fresh, although leftovers Keep covered in the fridge for 2-3 days. Reheat in the microwave or in a small saucepan with additional almond milk to add moisture.
