Tips for making Chocolate Chip Steel Cut Oat Quinoa Granola Bars

  • The seeds and nuts can be replaced with all seeds, other nuts etc. to accompany a nut-free diet or different tastes.

  • For sugar-free granola bars, replace the sweeteners with this sugar-free sweetener, and use these lovely chocolate chips.

  • If you do not have/do not want to use crystallized ginger, omit or replace with 1 tsp ground ginger.

  • These bars store well covered in airtight containers at room temperature or the fridge for up to one week.

Super nutritious and delicious Chocolate Chip Quinoa and Steel Cut Oat Granola Bars! These make a perfect gluten-free and vegan snack!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup gluten free steel cut oats
  • 1 cup quinoa, uncooked
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 cup cashews, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup raw honey, or maple syrup for vegan option
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup crystallized ginger, chopped (I like to use honey crystallized)
  • 3 tbs chocolate chips, for topping (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Arrange oats, quinoa, seeds, and cashews on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Toast in a 350°F oven for 10 minutes. Set aside.
  3. In a saucepan over medium heat, add honey (or maple syrup), coconut sugar, salt & vanilla extract. Stir until all is melted & evenly combined. Turn off heat.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, combine your toasted oats, quinoa, seeds, & cashews, as well as your shredded coconut & crystallized ginger.
  5. Pour your honey, sugar, salt & vanilla mixture into your dry ingredients, mix until evenly combined.
  6. In a parchment paper lined pan (I used an 8″ round cake pan, square would work fabulously too), spread your granola bar mixture with a spatula evenly. Press down slightly. Top with chocolate chips if so desired.
  7. Bake for 20 minutes in a 350°F oven.
  8. Remove and let cool completely before slicing & serving.
  9. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
  10. Enjoy!
