Recipe Collab: Dark Chocolate Vegan Quinoa Cheesecake

Make this vegan, gluten-free dessert for someone special - even if that someone is you. With no refined sugar and lots of healthy fats it's relatively sinless, but still decadent enough to satisfy. Along with our Toasted Quinoa Flakes, we used a few products from our friends at Wildly Organic for this one, be sure to check them out!
