This quinoa chocolate cake is a delicious way to incorporate a popular superfood into your dessert. From Sue Moran, the Super Healthy Kids recipe is adapted from the blog Barefeet in the Kitchen.

You have the option of topping the cake with powdered sugar or going full-out with chocolate whipped cream frosting. To make the treat vegan, you could also use coconut cream instead of traditional heavy whipping cream. To make your own quinoa chocolate cake at home, you will need ingredients such as cooked quinoa, unsweetened almond milk and unsweetened cocoa powder.

This is a sneaky way to include a protein-packed power grain and include some extra nutrients for your children. It's also a tasty way to get rid of any quinoa you want to get rid of in your pantry.
