Quinoa Protein Bars

Submitted by: EJSELHORST


Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    1/3 cup quinoa, pre-rinsed
    2/3 cup water
    16-20 whole (pitted) figs, no sugar added
    1/2 cup raw almonds with skin
    1/3 cup natural crunchy peanut butter (almond butter is an option)
    1/4 cup Dark Chocolate Chips

Directions

Add quinoa and water to a small sauce, cover and bring to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer and cook approximately 15 minutes or until all water has been absorbed. Cool to room temperature and refrigerate at least 2 hours...overnight will work.

Using a food processor, add dates and pulse until they form a ball. Remove dates and place in a medium mixing bowl. Add almonds to the food processor and pulse until finely minced. Be careful not to turn the almonds into mill. Add dates, almonds, peanut butter, chocolate chips, and cold quinoa to the food processor and pulse until ingredients are well combined. Return ingredients to the mixing bowl, shape into 6 - 2" x 1" bars, about 1" thickness. Bars can be stored in an airtight container for several days.
