Print Recipe
Ingredients:
* 3 cups cooked quinoa (equal to 1 cup uncooked quinoa)
* 2 & 1/2 cups oats (steel cut or quick cooking)
* 3/4 cup chocolate chips (I like minis!)
* 1/4 cup flaxseed
* 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter (can use all natural)
* 3/4 cup milk
* 1/4 cup honey
Directions:
1. Cook the quinoa according to the directions on the package (takes about 15-20 minutes). You'll need 2 cups of water for 1 cup of uncooked quinoa. Allow it to cool before moving forward.
2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
3. Combine the cooked & cooled quinoa, oats, chocolate chips, and flaxseed in a bowl and mix to combine.
4. Add in the peanut butter, milk, and honey and stir to combine. *TIP* Spray the 1/4 cup with non-stick cooking spray before measuring the honey, it will ensure that it doesn’t stick to the cup.
5. Spray an 8x8 inch baking pan with non-stick cooking spray. Transfer the quinoa mixture to the baking pan and distribute evenly with a spatula.
6. Bake for 21-26 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and allow the bars to cool. Cut and store in an airtight container in the fridge.
