Serves: 10-12 bars
Ingredients
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • ¼ cup quinoa
  • ¼ cup walnuts, chopped
  • ¼ cup wild jungle peanuts
  • ¼ cup dried mulberries
  • ¼ cup dried goldenberries
  • ¼ cup goji berries
  • 2 Tbl cacao nibs
  • 1 Tbl pumpkin seeds
  • 1 Tbl hemp seeds
  • 1 Tbl chia seeds
  • 1 Tbl raw honey
  • ¼ cup yacon syrup
  • ⅔ cup almond butter (or unsweetened sunflower seed butter)
  • ¼ cup raw coconut oil, melted
  • 1-2 tsp sea salt (to taste)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line a large baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a hot skillet, add the dry oats and uncooked quinoa and toss until nicely toasted and can smell the aroma.
  3. Add the toasted oats/quinoa to a large mixing bowl and toss in the walnuts, wild jungle peanuts, mulberries, golden berries, goji berries, cacao nibs, pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds, and chia seeds. Toss dry ingredients together and set aside.
  4. In the same skillet, gently melt (low heat) the raw honey, yacon syrup, almond butter, raw coconut oil, and sea salt and whisk until all ingredients are well-combined.
  5. Pour the wet mixture onto the dry mixture and mix thoroughly. Press mixture into baking pan and either allow to cool for 15-20 minutes for a softer bar or cook for 15-20 minutes for a crunchier bar.
  6. If you decide to cook, remove from oven after it's baking time and allow to cool. Place in the fridge for at least an hour and then cut the bars into desired size. Wrap each one individually for an easy on-the-go meal to grab.
