Quinoa Breakfast Bars

Notes

See the vegan version as well.

Ingredients

3 cup
quinoa, cooked and completely cooled
1 cup
rolled oats (gluten-free or regular)
1⁄2 tsp
salt
1 cup
berries, fresh or frozen (or other fruit chopped into 1/4-inch chunks)
1⁄2 cup
raw nuts or seeds (optional) (chopped walnuts, almonds or pumpkin seeds work well)
6  
eggs, beaten
1⁄2 cup
rice or almond milk
1⁄2 cup
organic brown rice sugar or raw honey
2 tsp
vanilla extract
4 tsp
cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375º F.
  2. Line a baking pan with lightly greased parchment paper.
  3. Combine cooked quinoa, oats and salt in a large mixing bowl. Mix until well combined. Add in the fruit and nuts or seeds (optional).
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together eggs.
  5. Add almond or rice milk, brown sugar or honey, vanilla extract and cinnamon to the egg mixture and stir until thoroughly combined. If using raw honey, heating it slightly will make blending easier.
  6. Add the egg mixture to the quinoa mixture and stir to combine. The batter will be very thick. Pour into the parchment-lined baking dish and distribute evenly.
  7. Bake for 30-35 minutes until golden and set.
  8. Invert to a baking rack to cool as quickly as possible.
  9. When cool, cut and serve alone or with nut butter.
  10. Store bars refrigerated in an air-tight container.
