Quinoa Love

C5C01F27-249A-4E60-AF63-D24D1CB09750.jpegAnytime I see a great deal I just can’t pass it up.  One example is when I was Aldi’s the other week and saw a great one on quinoa- score!!!!  I got it home, put it away, and it sat.  You see, I forgot a very key thing…… I hate quinoa.

So, I had to get creative and figure out a way to make it delicious!  The answer- dessert!

I know…. how could quinoa make a dessert/candy?   How about Clean with honey and coconut oil and all things that your body loves?!   Even better, easy to make.
