Quinoa Mock Candy Bars


My kids LOVE these!  They cannot believe they get to eat them for breakfast!  Plus, it is so much better than sugary cereal or pop tarts.  They also eat these for after school snacks and as a dessert.  These little bars are full of fiber, protein, and other nutritious stuff.  Here are the details:

Quinoa Mock Candy Bars

1/2 cup coconut oil

1 1/2 cups cooked quinoa

1 cup old fashioned oats (you could use quick oats)

2 TBS wheat germ

2 TBS flaxseed meal

1 cup peanut butter

1/4 cup honey

1/4 cup chocolate chips

Melt coconut oil in microwave for about 15 seconds.  Add rest of ingredients.  Mix well.  Grease a 9×13 casserole dish (or line with parchment paper).  Pour mixture into dish.  Freeze for at least 30 minutes.  Cut into squares.  Store in zip lock bag in freezer.
