INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/2 cup dry quinoaI used white, but you can use any variety
  • 1/2 cup chia seedsI used black chia seeds, but any kind will work
  • 2 Tbsp. ground flax seeds
  • 1 cup rolled oatsgluten free
  • 1/4 tsp. pink Himalayan salt
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. cardamom
  • 1/2 cup raw almonds; coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup brown rice syrup
  • 1/2 cup almond butter

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine quinoa, chia seeds, flax seed, rolled oats, cinnamon, salt, cardamom and chopped raw almonds. Stir to combine.
  3. In a small, microwave-safe dish, combine raw almond butter, organic brown rice syrup and honey. Stir to mix, then microwave for 1 minute to soften.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients and stir with a plastic spatula to thoroughly mix. Wet ingredients may begin to firm up, in which case you will need to use clean hands to knead the mixture together.
  5. When finished, transfer your mixture to a parchment lined baking dish (I used an 8 x 8 glass Pyrex dish), and pat down mixture with a plastic spatula to make a single, even layer.
  6. Bake on middle rack of oven for 15 minutes.
  7. When finished, remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes.
  8. After ten minutes, remove bars from the pan by lifting up the sides of the parchment paper. Place bars on a wire rack to finish cooling.
  9. Cut finished bars with a sharp, non-serrated knife or pizza cutter.
  • Wrap cooled bars in saran wrap and store in refrigerator until ready to eat.
