I have to start this post with the following caveats: no, this recipe isn’t Paleo, it isn’t Zone balanced, and it’s not what I would call healthy. This is a simple, gluten-free dessert that I improvised one day and am posting because a few of you expressed interest in the recipe. That being said, it’s delicious!
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 to 1 cup quinoa flakes (or quinoa flour)
1/2 to 1 cup shredded coconut (sweetened or unsweetened, to suit your preference)
Mix together the condensed milk, quinoa flakes and shredded coconut. I improvised this recipe, so I’m not sure exactly how much quinoa and coconut were added, but I had a bit more quinoa than coconut, and I added enough to give the mixture the consistency of a thick batter.
Pour the mixture into a greased baking dish (I used an 8.5 x 8.5 inch dish).
Sprinkle with shredded coconut.
Drizzle honey across the top in a zig-zag pattern.
Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes. It’s done when nicely browned.
