Rinse quinoa by placing it in a strainer and running it under water for 1 minute. Transfer for a medium sized saucepan, add water and cover. Bring to a boil, then reduce to simmer for 20-25 minutes. Donít remove the lid while cooking. Once complete, remove lid and set aside.
Combine coconut milk, eggs, and flax in a small bowl. Stir and set aside.
Preheat oven to 325F and line a 9◊13 pan with parchment paper across both sides for easy lifting and set aside.
In a large bowl combine quinoa with the coconut milk mixture. Stir until fully combined.
Add remaining ingredients.

These bars are great but can get a little bit messy. The longer they sit, the firmer theyíll get. Or, stick them in the fridge for a couple of hours.
