The chocolate crispies you buy in the shops are laced with white sugar, white rice and margarine, which are not good for anyone. These gorgeous popped quinoa crisps from NatureDoc are packed with goodness and taste absolutely delicious. Full of healthy fats and proteins, no sugar rush here! Naturally gluten-free, egg-free and dairy-free.

Recipe Notes

You can easily swap the popped quinoa for puffed buckwheat, brown rice crispies or even Oatibix flakes. You make a choice depending on what grains and seeds your child can tolerate and what you have in your store cupboard. They all taste amazing!
