Chocolate Quinoa Krispies
Hello friends! hope you are having a wonderful day, I'm excited to share today's recipe with you! Do you remember having those rice cereal marshmallow bars as a kid? Well, this recipe is somehow like it, but better for several reasons.
I remember my mom putting into my lunch bag a energy bar based on cereal where the sugar quantity was insane, of course I didn't had notion about it. But know with my nutrition knowledge and experimenting different things with my body I know now what works for me and what doesn't.
The reasons why these Quinoa Krispies are better is the quality of the ingredient and here I will tell you why:
Quinoa is a vegetarian source of protein, and it's naturally gluten free so these are perfecto for anyone dealing with gluten sensitivities o celiac disease and it's also a great source of manganese, an amino acids that promotes bone health.
Beef gelatin is which is a great source of essential amino acids like glycol, proline, valine, arginine, lysine and alanine. These amino acids promote a stronger gut tissue to prevent strange molecules pass this barrier and it also essential for the regeneration of other tissues.
Collagen with the amazing benefits of beef gelatin too! I get this brand because it includes five different types of collagen, and each one of them have a different purpose in our bodies.
You are going to love them and you won't never tell how healthy they are. And guess what, they are so easy to make! I make a dozen of them and stored them in the freezer so i can have them at any given moment!
Plus who doesn't love chocolate right? The chocolate flavor was given by the multi collagen but if you have unflavored collagen feel free to add 3 Tbsp of raw cacao.
