Vegan Quinoa Brownies

Vegan Quinoa Brownies

Contrary to what you might believe, quinoa isn't just for mealtimes—this powerful plant based protein also makes a great snack! Don't believe us? SIMPLi Regenerative Organic Certified® White Quinoa was just featured in Parade's roundup of best healthy snacks. We recommend swapping cooked quinoa for oats or flour in your favorite dessert recipes to amp up the protein content. Here's a recipe idea to get you started.

SIMPLi Vegan Quinoa Brownies



  • Cook the SIMPLi Regenerative Organic Certified® White Quinoa according to package instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C)

  • Oil a square pan

  • Transfer the quinoa to a bowl, mix in unsweetened cocoa powder, sugar, and banana

  • Stir, then mix in unsweetened milk and vegan butter

  • Stir again, then mix in baking powder, and vanilla extract

  • Keep mixing, then add in chocolate chips

  • Mix until the batter is smooth and no pieces of quinoa show

  • Pour the batter into the prepared square pan and sprinkle extra chocolate chips on top if desired

  • Bake for 17-19 minutes in the center rack of the oven or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with a little crumb on it – meaning the brownie is still moist but cooked

  • Cool down immediately on a wire rack for 30 minutes before cutting into squares



  • Store in an airtight box in the fridge for up to 4 days or freeze for up to 3 months
