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.
Quinoa & Oat Breakfast Bars- Gluten Free
Makes one 9×9-inch pan cut into squares.
2 Ripe Bananas
1 Cup Rolled Oats
1 Cup Quinoa Cooked
1/4 Cup Raisins
2 Tbsp Raw Cocoa Nibs
1/4 Cup Sunflower Seeds
1/4 Tsp Cinnamon
1/4 Tsp Nutmeg
1 Tsp Vanilla
Preheat oven to 350°F
Grease a 9×9-inch square baking dish with coconut oil.
Step 1. Mash the bananas until there are no clumps.
Step 2. Grab a mixing bowl, and add all your ingredients. Mix thoroughly until everything is incorporated.
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).
