On a recent visit to my health food store I found a bag of puffed quinoa. I had heard of this delight but until now never found it.
It works so well with this recipe and for me is very reminiscent of making chocolate covered rice krispies or corn flakes in paper cup cake cases as a child :)
They are a gluten free, light, tasty, fibre and protein packed sweet treat, perfect for an afternoon nibble.
