Blueberry Quinoa Flake Bake
  • ¼ cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1 egg *see note
  • ½ cup quinoa flakes
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ cup fresh or frozen blueberries
Lemon Cream
Blueberry Quinoa Flake Bake
  1. Prepare a 16oz. microwave/oven safe dish by oiling with a dab of coconut oil. Set aside. Drop all ingredients in a small bowl and mix until fully incorporated. Press mixture into prepare dish and even out with fork.
  2. Microwave option: Place in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes. You’ll know when it’s done when it rises slightly, is harder to the touch, and pulls away from the sides of the dish. Don’t bake it too long, or you’ll have a chocolate Frisbee!
  3. Oven option: Place in a preheated oven at 350F and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  4. Allow to rest for 1 minute before tipping over onto a plate and smothering with lemon cream. Or, serve in the dish as I did with this version.
Lemon Cream
  1. Place all ingredients in a small blender and blend until smooth.
Feel free to use ¼ cup egg whites instead of 1 egg. To keep vegan, use and additional ¼ cup apple sauce and cook for a slightly longer period. If you’re not sensitive to oats, and can’t get your paws on any quinoa flakes, quick oats will work well for this recipe, too.
