Prep: 5 minsCook: 2 hoursTotal: 2 hours 5 mins
Servings: 8 1x


  • 1 1/2 cup natural peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup agave nectar (honey or maple syrup works)
  • 1 1/2 cup puffed quinoa
  • 1/2 cup 60% cacao dark chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon refined coconut oil
  • couple pinches sea salt


  1. In a bowl, whisk together the peanut butter and agave nectar.
  2. Once it’s nice and smooth, fold in the puffed quinoa.
  3. Transfer the batter to a lined bread pan.
  4. Press it down until it’s an even layer on the bottom.
  5. In a small bowl, melt the chocolate chips. I used the microwave and stirred them every 30 seconds until it was smooth.
  6. Add the coconut oil and stir until completely smooth.
  7. Pour the chocolate on top of the crunchy peanut butter layer and pop in the freezer for a couple hours.
  8. Use a sharp knife to cut into eight squares and sprinkle with sea salt.
  9. Store in the fridge until you’re ready to eat!
