These delicious peanut butter quinoa granola bars are both crunchy and chewy. Made with a few simple, wholesome ingredients, they’re high in fiber and protein. Gluten free and freezer friendly too!
While quinoa and oats are toasting, make the peanut butter mixture by adding peanut butter, sea salt, honey, vanilla and coconut oil in medium saucepan over low heat. Stir every so often until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
Remove from heat and allow to cool for a few minutes, then add to the bowl with the oats, quinoa and chia. Stir well to incorporate. If adding chocolate chips, wait a few minutes before stirring in, otherwise they will melt. Another option is to melt the chocolate chips and drizzle them over the top of bars.
Bars are naturally gluten free if you use gluten free oats.
To make bars vegan: use maple syrup or brown rice syrup instead of honey.
Nutrition information does not include chocolate chips.
