  • LINE a 9 x 13-in. baking pan with parchment, overhanging on 2 sides.
  • STIR quinoa, peanuts, sesame seeds, flaxseeds and sunflower seeds in a large bowl.
  • COMBINE peanut butter and honey in a small saucepan over medium, stirring until melted and smooth, 1 to 2 min. Stir into quinoa mixture until evenly combined. Scrape into prepared pan, using a spatula to press firmly into an even layer.
