Description

A super tasty and healthy Chocolate Granola Bar packed with oats, puffed quinoa, nuts and seeds. Great for snacks or for lunch boxes too!


Ingredients

  • 100g / 3.5 oz quinoa (raw)
  • 125g /  1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 100g / 1/3 cup honey
  • 50g / 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 125g / 1 & 1/3 cup rolled oats
  • 2 tbsp mixed seeds
  • 2 tbsp flaked almonds
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp ground flaxseed
  • 2 tbsp chocolate chips (can be dairy free)
  • To top: 25g / 1 oz chocolate, melted and 1/2 tbsp freeze dried raspberries

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180c / 350f.
  2. Add the quinoa to a large dish or saucepan over a medium heat. Cook for a few minutes, stirring constantly. You will hear the quinoa “pop”. Cook until its just starting to brown. Remove from the dish and place aside in a bowl or on a plate.
  3. In the same dish add the peanut butter, honey and coconut oil and cook for a couple of minutes until melted and then remove from the heat.
  4. Add in the quinoa, oats, seeds, flaked almonds, chia seeds, ground flaxseed and chocolate chips. Mix well until everything is well combined.
  5. Line a 9in square baking dish with parchment paper and pour in the mixture. Press down firmly with the back of a spoon.
  6. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes until its starting to crisp.
  7. Leave it to cool a little before removing from the tin and then allowing it to cool completely. Ideally, also chill it. This will stop it falling apart.
  8. Cut into 8 large bars (or 16 small) and top with a little drizzle of melted chocolate and some freeze dried raspberries.

Notes

These bars will keep in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
