Three-Grain Chewy Energy Bars

Submitted by: BZOOTY

Introduction

Recipe from the Front Burner Blog. Recipe from the Front Burner Blog.
Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients


    1/2 cup steel cut oats, uncooked
    1.2 cup millet, uncooked
    1/2 cup quinoa, uncooked
    2 bananas, peeled and sliced into thin discs
    1/2 cup agave nectar
    2 tbsp cocoa powder
    1/2 tsp vanilla extract
    1 cinnamon stick (or 1 tsp cinnamon powder)
    2 tbsp finely ground coffee
    1 tsp salt
    4 cups water
    2 tbsp coconut oil

Directions

To Prepare: Add all ingredients through water (leaving out the coconut oil) in a rice cooker or saucepan and stir to combine. Bring mixture up to a simmer and cover for 20-25 minutes until it reaches the consistency of a thick batter. Stir occasionally. (Use the quick-cook setting if using a rice cooker.) If using a cinnamon stick, remove from the mixture once batter is formed.

In the meantime, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Melt the coconut oil by microwaving for 20 seconds and use half to coat the bottom of a 9 by 6 non-stick baking pan. Once your mixture has finished simmering and formed a batter, add the batter to the baking pan and smooth the top with a spatula. Coat the top of the mixture with the remaining coconut oil.

Bake for 1 hour. Let cool completely then slice into 12 bars. Store in the refrigerator these are best if eaten chilled!

    Soft and chewy yet holds together well. Could do with more flavour as the millet and quinoa are already strong. Switched in honey for Agave; worked OK.

    Tip: It's best to rinse quinoa beforehand as some varieties can have a slightly bitter taste; something to do with residue on the outside hulls - 3/3/11
