I'm sure if you're anything like me you're busy and sometimes all you have time to eat is something you can grab as you're running out the door. So whatever it may be it had better be quick, easy, portable, and healthy.
Quinoa is packed with protein, fiber, and calcium. That makes it a super choice for breakfast! While it may not be the first food that comes to mind, I think you'll really enjoy the following recipe for breakfast bars.
Quinoa Breakfast Bars (Makes 6 bars; double it easily)
1/2 C Chickpea Flour
1 Cup Quinoa, cooked
1 Cup Traditional GF Oats
1/2 Cup Raw Walnuts, chopped
1 Tbsp Cinnamon
1/2 Tsp Baking Soda
1 Tbsp Chia Seeds
1 Tbsp Ground Flaxseed
1/2 Cup Organic Creamy Peanut Butter
1/3 Cup Coconut Nectar or Organic Maple Syrup
1/2 Cup Mashed Sweet Potato
1 Tsp Organic Vanilla Extract
Mix all of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Grease an 8x8 dish with coconut oil. Press mixture into dish. Bake on 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Let them cool, slice, and serve.
*Make a double to quadruple batch, slice them into individual pieces, and freeze them.
Be healthy, be blessed, and be a good steward!
