Step 1
Cover a baking sheet with wax paper and set aside.
Step 2
Thoroughly rinse the Quinoa (1/4 cup) to remove the saponin by adding uncooked quinoa to a bowl, filling it with clean water and soaking for a few minutes. Use a wire whisk to move the quinoa around in the water, then strain the quinoa in a fine-mesh sieve and rinse with fresh water.
Step 3
Add wet quinoa to saute pan and cook on stovetop over medium-low heat, using a whisk or spatula to stir in pan.
Step 4
Toast the quinoa by stirring continuously until brown and nutty in flavor, around 5-6 minutes. Once quinoa is toasted, remove from heat and set aside.
Step 5
While toasted quinoa cools, melt Vegan Dark Chocolate Chunks (1 1/2 cups) and Coconut Oil (1/2 Tbsp) in double boiler if you have one, or melt in a small pot on low, stirring continuously and watching to make sure chocolate does not burn.
Step 6
Once chocolate has fully melted, remove from heat and stir in toasted quinoa until well mixed.
Step 7
Pour chocolate mixture onto prepared wax covered pan and spread into thin layer.
Step 8
Add Goji Berry Trail Mix (1/3 cup) , Cacao Nibs (2 Tbsp) , and Walnuts (1/4 cup) , then press down lightly to mix toppings into chocolate. Put in freezer for 15-20 minutes, or until chocolate has hardened.
Step 9
Take heart-shape cookie cutters and press down firmly to make little heart-shaped bites.
Step 10
Store in refrigerator. Enjoy!
