Rock-N-Rolled Oats and Quinoa Energy Bar

My YJ Recipes

Saved!

breakfast bar

For a quick fix of energy, whole unprocessed foods always trump packaged ones. But a great organic apple or just-ripe banana isn't always available when you need it. That's when energy bars can save the day. Just make sure to choose the most natural form you can find (Sadie liks Luna, Kind, and Pure brands), with the least amount of processing, sugar, and fats. Or whip up your own energy bar for even more wholesome nourishment the next time hunger strikes.

Ingredients

Makes 8 to 12 bars

2 cups organic quick cooking rolled oats
1/2 cup quinoa, cooked
1/2 cup organic protein powder (optional)
1/4 cup ground flaxseed or chia seeds or a combination
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 cup raw almonds
1/2 cup dried fruit of choice
1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
1/2 cup buckwheat flour
1 cup water
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup olive oil (or replace with half a mashed banana)
2 teaspoons organic vanilla extract

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 350˙F. Grease a 9 x 13-inch pan with a little organic butter or organic canola spray.

2. Combine everything in a large bowl. Stir until flour is mixed evenly throughout. Spoon mixture into pan; use your fingers to press and fit to the edges.

3. Bake for 20 minutes. Let cool on the stovetop for 20 minutes. Cut into bars and serve. Store extras in an airtight dish in the fridge or freeze, tightly wrapped. Bars last a week without freezing.
