I love the versatility of quinoa.  It’s mild nutty flavor goes well with sweet and savory dishes.

It is also gluten free and considered a super food due to the nutrition that each little grain contains.

I received samples of Nocciolata to try out in some of my kitchen experiments.  Nocciolata is an organic, high quality chocolate hazelnut spread.  I enjoyed the product so much that I did decide to use it in this healthy dessert recipe.

This chocolate hazelnut drizzle is a trick that I use often.  Sometimes I am out of regular chocolate sauce or just want something a little fancier.

I always have chocolate hazelnut spread in my cupboard.  Just add a splash of warm water to a tablespoon of the spread.  Stir until the water is fully incorporated.

You have a simple yet flavorful chocolaty sauce to drizzle.  And it only takes 10 seconds to prepare!

  1. I adore this recipe Nicole. I haven’t tried quinoa in a sweet preparation but I have to now. This is going to be dessert tonight!

    • Nicole Harris says:

      Thanks Christie! I love sweet quinoa recipes. I eat a quinoa breakfast bowl that is made with quinoa, milk, maple syrup, almonds and golden raisins … So Good! Enjoy :)

  2. Do you serve/eat it warm or cold?

    • Nicole Harris says:

      This is meant to be served cold. But you could totally eat it warm if you prefer. Have a great week :)

  3. Great idea to make a dessert quinoa bowl! Love these flavors!
