http://schneiderchen.de | © 2018 | http://angiesrecipes.blogspot.com



If you adore classic puffed rice bars, then these sweet, chewy, and seedy puffed quinoa bars are for you too. Not only are these bars great for kids, they are perfect in your lunch-box for an extra energy boost during the day. They are vegan, naturally gluten free, super tasty and contain no refined white sugar.

  • 180 g Tahini
  • 250 g Maple syrup
  • 100 g Puffed quinoa
  • 200 g Sunflower seeds
  • 200 g Pepitas
  • 30 g Black sesame seeds
  • 30 g White sesame seeds
  1. Grease a 20cm x 30cm baking pan. Line base and sides with baking paper, extending paper 5cm above edges of pan.
  2. Place tahini and maple syrup in a small saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes or until syrup has melted and mixture is combined.
  3. Combine puffed quinoa, sunflower seeds, pepitas and sesame seeds in a bowl. Add tahini-syrup mixture. Working quickly, stir until combined. Spoon mixture into the prepared pan, pressing with the back of a spoon to level and compact. Refrigerate overnight or until set.
  4. Cut into 16 - 20 bars. Store the rest in an airtight container in the fridge.
