Recipes :Chocolate-Almond Quinoa Breakfast Bars


Chocolate-Almond Quinoa Breakfast Bars
Serves: 14
Time: About 15 minutes 
Perfect for a quick breakfast on the go, these breakfast bars are full of naturally-sweet ingredients like dates and shredded coconut. They remind me of candy bars, but without the guilt. Simply mix cooked quinoa, dates, almond meal, and coconut together into a food processor with a little water, and then shape into 14 small bars. For extra indulgence, you’ll also be melting some chocolate and drizzling it on top. If you think you’ll still be hungry, take a piece of fruit like a banana with you, too. Cooking Note: Bars should be stored in the fridge so they don’t get too soft, or you can even freeze them, and they’ll last longer. 
1 cup cooked quinoa 
12 no-sugar Medjool dates (whole) 
½ cup coarse almond meal 
½ cup unsweetened shredded coconut 
2-3 teaspoons water 
¼ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips 
Vegetable oil as needed 
1. Put quinoa, dates, almond meal, and coconut into a food processor and pulse until you get a sticky “batter.” 
2. Put the mixture in a bowl and add teaspoons of water until you can form bars. 
3. Line a baking dish with foil and put in the bars about ½ inch from each other. As long as they’re not touching, they’ll be fine.
4. In a saucepan, add chocolate chips and melt, stirring constantly. You might need to add a bit of vegetable oil to get the chocolate smooth.
5. Drizzle liquid chocolate over the bars. 
6. Put bars in the fridge to harden.
