I’m excited to have Meg from Sweet Twist of Blogging here with us today!
Hi Everyone, I am Meg from Sweet Twist of Blogging I am so happy to be doing a guest post on Cooking Quinoa. This site is my go to for awesome quinoa recipes. Since I am obsessed with quinoa I am on it often. I am a marketing finance professional by day (except this year as I am on mat leave), baker, blogger and fairly new mom every other second of the day. My little one is almost 10 months. To break free from a life of numbers and spreadsheets, I started blogging to explore my passion and be creative. I love baking, coming up with new creations and working on my photography, “Sweet Twist of Blogging” is where I can do all these things and more. Sweet Twist of Blogging is mostly about baking. I like to find a balance between rich desserts and healthier desserts. Too many rich ones plays hell on my waistline so it is important to not over do it. This is why I love quinoa, it is a great way to add a healthy aspect to your desserts. I have made a lot of crumbles and crisps in my lifetime and using quinoa was a great switch up and an easy sneak in.
If you are looking for some baking goodies come on by. You can find me in many places.
- 9-12 medium peaches
- 1/2 cup blueberries/raspberries
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/3 cup brown rice flour
- 1 tbsp cornstarch
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup brown rice flour
- 3/4 cup quinoa
- 1 1/2 tbsp cinnamon
- 1/3 cup hemp seeds
- 1/2 tsp nutmeg
- 1 cup ground almonds
- 3/4 cup butter, cool but close to room temp, in chunks
- ) Peel and slice the peaches and place in a large bowl. Place a sieve over the fruit, a sugar, cinnamon, flour and cornstarch and sift over fruit. Mix together.
- ) Preheat the oven to 375F. Lightly spray a 9x13 pan. Place the fruit mixture into the pan.
- ) In another large bowl mix together all ingredients except the butter.
- ) Add the butter and mix together with your hands, pressing the butter in to the dry mixture similar to cutting butter into a pie dough. The mixture will begin to come together but still crumbly.
- ) Top the fruit with this mixture, gently mixing in a little bit as well.
- ) Bake for 45-55 minutes. Top will be golden, fruit will be bubbling.
Wendy's Note: For an unrefined option to brown sugar try muscovado sugar!
