Quinoa Nut Bars Recipe
I am trying to be a little healthier with my snacking and not reach for the chocolate bar as soon as I get that first pang of hunger. I love having a stash of quinoa bars in my fridge as it stops me snacking on rubbish, but the Aldi goji & cranberry quinoa bars I love are sometimes hard to find.
I have been experimenting with this recipe for a while and I think I have finally nailed it! Most of the recipes I have seen online just fall apart or don’t taste sweet enough for my palette, so I kept compiling a recipe until it was quick, tasty and didn’t break into chunks as soon as it was cut.
They are so filling and easy to make and are just 214 calories each making them a perfect snack. They are also vegan, and you can make it with almond butter if you have a peanut allergy.
Makes 10 small bars.
30g Sunflower Seeds
10g Chia Seeds
10g Sesame Seeds
120g Peanut Butter
120g Maple Syrup
Preheat the oven to 180°C and line a 9 inch square baking tin with baking paper, leaving enough overhang to remove once cooked.
Add all the ingredients into a bowl and mix! This will take some man power all the ingredients need to be covered with the maple syrup and peanut butter.
Transfer into the baking tin and press down very firmly to create a flat surface and ensure all the ingredients are packed together.
Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.
Remove from the oven and place on a wire rack in the tin to cool completely.
Place in the fridge to firm up for an hour and then remove from the tin and slice.
Store in the fridge for up to two weeks.
