Quinoa & Oat Breakfast Bars- Vegan & Gluten Free

5

Breakfast Bars!  I’m never hungry in the morning so its a chore to eat. But I absolutely need a coffee, these little bars are a perfect companion. Small and full of flavour but not overbearing.

The oats provide fibre, the quinoa and sunflower seeds add a dose of protein,  while the raw cacao nibs add some flavour and are packed with antioxidants.

Step 3. Bake for 30 minutes at 350°F or until the edges start to pull away from the pan. When its completely cooled cut into bars. If you would like a dryer breakfast bar, put your oven at 300F and cook for an hour (check on them half way in).
