Raw Quinoa Flapjacks

I hope you guys love my raw quinoa flapjacks. They are perfect for a 4pm pick me up and are completely sugar free, getting their sweetness naturally from honey. They are also packed with oats, seeds, and quinoa flakes which will leave you feeling full of energy!

INGREDIENTS:
300 g Quinoa
100 g Pitted Dates
100 g Honey
2 tbsp Coconut Oil
1 tbsp Cinnamon
50 g Raisins
100 g Pecans
100 g Pumpkin Seeds
50 g Sunflower Seeds
Pinch of Sea Salt

STEP 1: BLEND INGREDIENTS
In your food processor, blend the dates, cinnamon, honey and coconut oil. You want for it to blend into a paste. Add a touch of water to thin it out if it gets lumpy.

STEP 2: MIX QUINOA FLAKES
Next, in a bowl place the quinoa flakes, raisins, nuts, seeds and salt and mix together.

STEP 3: POUR IN DATE SYRUP
Pour the date syrup into this mix and massage with your hands to get the mixture covered in the sticky goodness.

STEP 4: ASSEMBLE, FREEZE AND EAT
Line a baking tray with coconut oil and spoon the mixture into it. Pop it in the freezer for an hour, then slice it into 2cm by 4cm rectangles, then place into the fridge until you are ready to eat them.

    Hi Madeleine, I tried to make these at the weekend but the mixture didn’t hold, the bars just seem to crumble. Any suggestions of what I can do to make them stiffer? Thank you

      did you use quinoa grain? The recipe calls for Quinoa flakes, which will stick the bars together x

      I made the recipe this morning and this happened to me too! Not sure what I might have done wrong. :-( It felt like there wasn’t quite enough sticky mixture vs. the amount of quinoa flakes? X

      Hi Jena, was it definitely the quinoa flakes and not the grain? x

    • Jena Birch

      Definitely the flakes! I bought them specially. X

      Maybe try using less quinoa flakes if there is too much dry mixture vs sticky x

      No, you should use dried apricots, raisins or use more coconut oil and add some almond butter x
