I'm a huge fan of *cooked* quinoa, but apparently not of uncooked. The chocolate and marshmallow part of it was fantastic, but the texture and flavor of the quinoa reminded me of birdseed with a nasty aftertaste. I couldn't eat more than one little bite :( What a waste.

This is some seriously crazy stuff. The flavor is fantastic (depending on the qualify of ingredients you use, of course), but when you bite into a piece your head kind of rattles a little because of all of the quinoa popping against your teeth, and just when you think you're done with a bite . . . you're not - really. That quinoa just hangs around and hangs around in your mouth defying all sorts of statistical odds. Since quinoa is on the pricey side, I definitely wouldn't consider doing this again, but I give serious kudos to Anthony for the sheer unlikeliness of the ingredients in this recipe.

I gave this a try and yup, it was worth it. I did cut the bars small (about an inch square) since they are calorie and fat laden. I do think the calorie count given is on the extremely high side. I will make them again.
