Chocolate Quinoa and Cannabis Bars

Difficulty: Easy








Equipment & Ingredients

  • Equipment
  • Loaf pan
  • parchment paper
  • mixing bowl
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • skillet
  • Ingredients
  • 1 cup quinoa soaked over night
  • 1 cup chocolate chips


  • Line a loaf pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Heat a skillet on medium-high heat. You want to get it hot!Pour the quinoa into the skillet and allow it to toast, stirring constantly, for about 2-4 minutes. You'll hear the quinoa start to pop (like popcorn), and it will begin to smell nutty. Keep stirring the quinoa until it starts to just slightly brown. Remove from heat before it begins to burn.
  • Melt the chocolate chips and the coconut oil together in a large bowl. I like to do this in the microwave–just melt it at 15s increments, stopping to stir each time.
    Once the chocolate is completely melted, stir in the quinoa until it's evenly coated.
    Pour the chocolate-quinoa mixture into the loaf pan and spread it into an even layer.
  • Freeze for 1 hour. Slice into bars and place in a Ziploc bag.

I know the chocolate and quinoa combination may sound odd at first, these Chocolate Quinoa and Cannabis Bars are unbelievable!


When you toast the quinoa for this recipe, they become crunchy and puffed just like Nestle Crunch bars.

But, this cannabis copycat version is so much better for you. And tastier too, if I say so myself!

It’s time to get high.

How Do You Toast Quinoa? 

Toasting quinoa is key to making these crunchy chocolate bars taste like a snack while still being healthy.

If you have the time and patience, I suggest soaking the quinoa overnight because it really makes it more tender!

If you decide this option, soak them overnight, and then pat the quinoa dry before adding it to the skillet to toast for a few minutes.

Just like popcorn, quinoa will pop and you’ll start to smell a delicious nutty smell – make sure you keep stirring the quinoa so it doesn’t burn.

What Chocolate Should I Use? 

I love dark chocolate, but you can use any chocolate that you like! Milk chocolate (or semi-sweet chocolate) would be great for this recipe too.

I recommend melting chocolate chips – it makes everything taste just so much better!
