Serving size

12 10 minutes 30 minutes




  • 170g Quinoa

  • 85g Oats

  • 30g Chia seeds

  • 50g Sunflower seeds

  • 50g Pistachio nuts

  • 50g Dried cherries or cranberries

  • 30g Desiccated coconut

  • 90ml Maple Syrup

  • 40g Butter

  • 25g Coconut oil

  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract

  • 15g Truvia


  • 1.

    Cook the quinoa according to instructions. Preheat oven to 180oC

  • 2.

    Next into a bowl add in the rolled oats, sunflower seeds, pistachios, dried cherries, chia seeds and coconut. Toss together, add in the Quinoa then add to a baking sheet and toast these ingredients for about 10 minutes in a 180oc oven.

  • 3.

    In a saucepan, combine the maple syrup, butter, coconut oil, and vanilla and warm over medium-low heat to dissolve the ingredients. Allow to simmer (stirring regularly) until the dry ingredients are done toasting.

  • 4.

    After 10 minutes of toasting, transfer the dry ingredients back into the mixing bowl stir in the Truvia, and pour in the sauce. This will be very sticky and you’ll want to move quickly to evenly coat the dry ingredients.

  • 5.

    Pour this mixture into a 9×9 inch baking pan, press it down evenly to compact, and bake for approximately 20 minutes until the edges just begin to brown, then remove from the oven and allow to cool completely before slicing into 10 bars (5 X 2). This mixture was designed to be chewy but hold together, and I would recommend storing in the refrigerator to keep the bars fully solid.
