Ingredients

  • a little coconut oil
  • 4.4 oz puffed quinoa
  • 1 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 3 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1/3 cup runny honey or maple syrup
  • 2/3 cup creamy peanut butter (the natural kind made from just peanuts!)
  • 2 1/2 oz dark chocolate, melted
  • flaky sea salt

Instructions

  • Prepare an 8/8 square baking pan by oiling it with a little coconut oil.
  • Mix the puffed quinoa, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and chia seeds in a large bowl.
  • Gently warm the honey and peanut butter together in a saucepan. Pour the warmed mix over the quinoa and seed mixture and stir very well, until everything is wet.
  • Press the mixture very firmly into the prepared baking dish. If it sticks to your hands, wet your fingers a little.
  • Chill the dish for at least two hours or until they're firm. You can also stick them in the freezer if you're short on time.
  • Once they're firm, cut into bars or squares. Drizzle with melted chocolate and sprinkle with sea salt. These are best kept in the fridge, they soften a little at room temperature because of the honey. You can still tuck them into a lunch box, they will just be a little softer to eat than straight out of the fridge.
