Give your granola bars a nutritious boost with matcha- a fine green tea powder, packed with antioxidants. These granola wedges are naturally gluten-free, dairy-free, and refined-sugar-free. Substitute your favorite dried fruit, nuts and/or seeds for the pumpkin seeds and/or dried pineapple in these granola bars. Puffed teff can be substituted with quinoa or amaranth pops too.

  • 220 g Rolled oats
  • 120 g Pepitas
  • 100 ml Maple syrup
  • 5 tbsp Almond butter
  • 3 tbsp Coconut oil
  • 1 tsp Vanilla paste
  • 75 g Dried pineapple, thinly sliced
  • 80 g Puffed teff (or armanth or quinoa)
  • 1/2 tsp Sea salt
  • 1 tbsp Matcha powder
  1. Preheat oven to 160C/320F. Combine rolled oats and pumpkin seeds on a baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes, stirring once or twice, until the oats are lightly toasted and have a nutty aroma. Remove and set aside to cool.
  2. In a small saucepan over low heat, combine the maple syrup, almond butter, coconut oil, and vanilla paste. Whisk to combine.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the cooled oats and pumpkin seeds with the dried pineapple, puffed teff, sea salt, and matcha powder. Pour the almond butter mixture over the oat mixture and stir quickly to mix.
  4. Spread the mix into an 9-10 inch springform pan lined with plastic wrap or baking paper. Press down the mixture firmly. Place in the fridge for a couple hours to firm up, then remove from fridge and slice into wedges. Keep leftovers in the fridge for up two weeks. | © 2020 | | © 2020 | | © 2020 | | © 2020 |

These look so good, I love the green colour from the matcha, and they are delicious too. I have some puffed rice I can use instead of teff, so I might give this recipe a go.

I had a bag of puffed quinoa a million years ago, they were rather difficult to find; wish I had seen this recipe back then. I love that you made this in a round pan and sliced wedges, so cool.

Very very creative granola bars Angie! Matcha makes everything delicious so I can't imagine that I fall in love with these immediately, especially with the dried pineapple. YUM!
