Prepare an 8×8 inch pan with parchment paper and set aside.
To a large bowl, add the quinoa puffs, peanut butter, hemp seeds, vanilla extract, vanilla paste, maple syrup, and salt.
Mix with a wooden spoon to combine.
Transfer the puffed quinoa to the prepared pan and firmly press down.
In a small bowl, combine the dark chocolate chips and coconut oil.
Melt the two ingredients together in the microwave, mix together.
Pour over top of the pressed-down quinoa puffs, and spread evenly
Set in the fridge for 3 – 5 minutes, add flaky salt on top, and set in the fridge until chocolate is firm.
