Quinoa Granola Bars

Prep Time 10 min Serves 10 bars     adjust servings

A healthy snack bar perfect for lunchboxes!


  • 2 1/2 cups quinoa flakes
  • 1 heaping cup almond butter (or nut butter of choice)
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup (honey will work too)
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground vanilla beans
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt


  1. Combine all the dry ingredients in one bowl .
  2. In a small saucepan , on medium-low heat, combine the almond butter, maple syrup and coconut oil. Stir until everything is well combined.
  3. Add the saucepan mixture to the dry ingredients and mix well. If the batter looks a little dry, you can add a little bit of milk. Since the mixture is thick, it takes a few minutes to mix well. I just used my hand to mix, but you can use a stand mixer as well.
  4. Line an 8x8 glass baking dish with parchment paper.
  5. Press the mixture into the baking dish. Make sure you press down evenly and hard so it sticks together.
  6. Stick in the fridge for 30 minutes to firm up.
  7. Once firmed up, slice into bars using a pizza cutter .


Recipe Notes

Store these bars in the fridge. You can also probably freeze them. Enjoy!
