Dark Chocolate Quinoa Clusters


What you will need:
1 cup dark chocolate (70%), melted
2.5 cups puffed quinoa cereal
1/2 cup dried cranberries

1. Melt the dark chocolate and mix into bowl with puffed quinoa and cranberries
2. Ensure that all the quinoa and cranberries are coated- otherwise add more melted chocolate (Think like Rice Krispie Squares)
3. Use a spoon to make into clusters and put on a baking sheet
4. Store in the refrigerator – eat chilled


Dark chocolate plays a major role in heart health. Make sure you read the ingredient label and choose a dark chocolate with the first ingredient being a cocoa mass or cocoa solids… NOT SUGAR! Dark chocolate contains flavonols. Flavonols are antioxidants which can help improve your blood flow and circulation. Therefore, dark chocolate can lower your risk of developing coronary heart disease or other cardiovascular diseases.

Now … go enjoy your clusters 🙂
