A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to be sent a mystery box of ingredients from Food Compass, an online food shopping website with lots of great products (I actually bought some really interesting looking pasta that I am looking forward to trying and I have fallen in love with Cogo Bites – they are soooo yummy!). In the box I received was puffed quinoa, LSA powder and coconut nectar syrup – all products I hadn’t tried out before, so I decided to use them all together in these snack bars.
I love home made muesli bars and the these Puffed Quinoa Snack Bars are a delish option to add in to the mix (I’ll link our other great muesli bar recipes at the bottom of this post – check them out for other ingredient ideas). They are held together with honey, so they are best kept in the fridge, as they fall apart a bit if kept at room temperature. Make them using whatever you have on hand – if you don’t have a certain ingredient, swap it out for something else. There’s no baking either, just throw everything together and you’re done. Easy.
½ cup shredded coconut
1 cup puffed quinoa
2 tablespoons chia seeds
½ almond meal
½ cup pumpkin seeds
½ cup sunflower seeds
2 tablespoons LSA powder
1 teaspoon cocoa powder
100g dark chocolate, roughly chopped
1 teaspoon almond essence
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 tablespoon coconut nectar syrup (or try golden syrup)
½ cup liquid honey
Grease and line a 20cm x 20cm square tin.
Place all the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Add the wet ingredients and mix to combine.
Press into the prepared tin. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours before cutting into squares and serving. Store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator.
