Chocolate hazelnut bars

When you are short on time and need to get out the door, these yummy, filling bars are great to grab on the run or to tuck into your pocket for later.


Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups quinoa flakes
  • 1 1/2 cups quick-cooking rolled oats
  • 1 cup mashed ripe bananas
  • 3/4 cup coarsely chopped hazelnuts
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds , optional
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°f (180°c). Lightly grease a baking sheet or line with parchment.
  • Mix together all the ingredients in a medium bowl. (The dough will be sticky.) Using a ¼-cup (60 mL) measure, place scoops of dough on the baking sheet. Dampen your hands with water and use the palm of your hand to flatten each scoop until ¾ inch (2 cm) thick. Form dough into circles or rectangles, arranging them 1 ½ inches (4 cm) apart.
  • Bake for 12 minutes. These bars do not brown much, so be careful not to overbake. Let cool on the baking sheet before storing in an airtight container.
