Have you been wanting to get more quinoa into your diet? These Quinoa Granola Bars would be a great way to start. Why is quinoa so great? It’s packed with a good amount of iron and fiber that will help keep you full. Quinoa is also one of the only plant based complete proteins. Which means it contains all 9 amino acids that our body requires for nutrition. It has a nutty flavor. Since quinoa is technically a seed, it is grain free as well. It is a perfect option for those who cannot tolerate oats. I used quinoa flakes to make these Quinoa Granola Bars. They look almost like quick oats.

If you needed a nut free option for school lunch boxes, I think sunflower butter could easily be replaced for the almond butter I used. These Quinoa Granola Bars are vegan, gluten free and grain free. This recipe is great because you can use it as a base to create your own bars. I can think of many fun ingredients to add. They would never get boring. I hope you enjoy! You may also like my German Chocolate Quinoa Brownies.
