- 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
- 3 tablespoons butter or coconut oil
- 1/2 cup cooked quinoa
- 1/4 cup flaxseed meal
- 2 tablespoons chia seeds
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 cup chopped almonds
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1/3 cup peanut butter
Pre-heat the oven to 325 degrees. Lightly coat a 8 x 8 baking pan with cooking spray or line it with parchment for easy removal of the bars.
In a medium skillet melt the butter or coconut oil over medium heat and add the oats. Cook over medium heat stirring occasionally until the oats start to turn golden brown. Transfer the oats to a medium mixing bowl. Add the quinoa, flaxseed, chia seeds, cinnamon and almonds to the oats.
In a small saucepan add the honey and peanut butter and bring the mixture to a boil, stirring constantly until the mixture comes to a boil. Pour the syrup over the oats and using a spatula make sure that all the ingredients are evenly coated. Spread the mixture into the prepared pan and bake the bars for 20 to 25 minutes until the bars are golden brown. Let them cool completely, slice into 12 portions and serve.
I’ve made these a couple times. One time I added raisins. You could add/remove anything you want.
