Puffed Quinoa, Hemp and Chocolate Bars - Vegan, Gluten-free, Grain-free


http://schneiderchen.de | © 2016 | http://angiesrecipes.blogspot.com




Packed full of wholesome ingredients, these tasty nutritional powerhouses are so easy to make and a perfect healthy snack on the go. Instead of using puffed quinoa, you could use puffed amaranth or puffed rice in this recipe.

  • 50 g Puffed quinoa
  • 30 g Shelled hemp seeds
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla powder
  • 30 g Unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 100 g Maple syrup
  • 80 g Coconut oil
  1. Line a 22cmx14cm rectangular pan with a large sheet of plastic wrap, with extra plastic hanging over edges of the pan. Stir together the puffed quinoa, hemp seeds, and vanilla powder in a bowl.
  2. In a saucepan, add cocoa powder, maple syrup and coconut oil. Heat over the medium heat until the mixture is melted and smooth.
  3. Pour over the amaranth mixture and stir until evenly coated. Transfer the mixture to the prepared pan and press down firmly with the back of a wooden spoon.
  4. Cover with plastic and refrigerate for 1 hour or until set. Cut into bars to enjoy.
