Gluten Free Quinoa Brownies With Date Syrup - A Perfect Healthy Snack

Gluten Free Quinoa Brownies With Date Syrup - A Perfect Healthy Snack - Plattershare - Recipes, food stories and food lovers
In brand collaboration with Place of Origin, this recipe is a part of #BellyNirvana program with Plattershare. Under this program, I received Oman dates and Quinoa. I have used Fard dates many a times. But the moment I opened the pack of Oman dates, the quality difference was clearly visible. Eat these dates and if you have been eating dates, you will fall in love with them. These large, moist and plump Oman dates had small seeds. For Quinoa, this was my first experience with this ingredient. Quinoa is categorized under whole grains, however it is a seed. Naturally gluten free, cholesterol free, and high protein Quinoa can be prepared like rice or barley. Everyone knows me for my healthy baking recipes and healthy baking workshops. Healthy dates and healthy quinoa made the experimental baker happy. The question was to make healthy recipes with these two products. And then I thought why not make healthy snack like quinoa brownies using both the ingredients.
