Ingredients

 2 cups cooked quinoa
 ½ cup vegetable oil
  cup almond milk
 4 large eggs
 1 ½ cups sugar
 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
 1 ½ tsp baking powder
 ½ tsp baking soda
 ½ tsp salt
Ganache
 9 oz semisweet chocolate chips
 1 cup coconut cream
 ½ cup chopped walnuts, optional

Directions

1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease and line two 9-inch cake pans with parchment paper. In a blender, add quinoa, oil, milk, eggs, and vanilla extract; blend until smooth, about 1 minute.

2

In a large bowl, whisk sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Pour in quinoa mixture and mix until batter is smooth. Pour batter into prepared cake pans. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 40 to 45 minutes. Allow cakes to cool completely in the pans before removing and decorating.

3

In a small saucepan over medium heat, bring coconut cream just to a simmer. Remove from heat and add the chocolate chips. Let stand 3 minutes then stir to combine. Allow the mixture to cool to room temperature before decorating.
