Description

Are you looking for an easy and filling snack that’s also healthy? These no-bake puffed quinoa bars are the better way to enjoy krispie treats—no marshmallows in sight! They’re great for kids or teens for school, wonderfully portable for work and on the go and also quick to make ahead for simple meal prep. Don’t give up on clean eating goals just because it’s time for back to school!

Ingredients

  • Coconut Oil, As Needed
  • 4-½ ounces, weight Puffed Quinoa
  • 1 cup Sunflower Seeds
  • ½ cups Pumpkin Seeds
  • 3 Tablespoons Chia Seeds
  • ⅓ cups Runny Honey OR Maple Syrup
  • ⅔ cups Creamy Peanut Butter (the Natural Kind)
  • 2-½ ounces, weight Dark Chocolate, Melted
  • Flaky Sea Salt

Preparation

Prepare an 8/8 square baking pan by oiling it with a little coconut oil.

Mix puffed quinoa, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and chia seeds in a large bowl.

Gently warm honey and peanut butter together in a saucepan. Pour warmed mix over the quinoa and seed mixture and stir very well, until everything is wet.

Press the mixture very firmly into the prepared baking dish. If it sticks to your hands, wet your fingers a little.

Chill the dish for at least 2 hours or until they’re firm. You can also stick them in the freezer if you’re short on time.

Once they’re firm, cut into bars or squares. Drizzle with melted chocolate and sprinkle with sea salt. These are best kept in the fridge, they soften a little at room temperature because of the honey. You can still tuck them into a lunch box, they will just be a little softer to eat than straight out of the fridge.
