Ingredients

  • 2 cups quinoa I get the linked brand at Costco
  • 4 cups buckwheat flour I get mine in bulk at our health food store
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut shreds I get mine in bulk at our health food store
  • 1 cup avocado oil I get mine at Costco
  • 3/4 cup organic molasses Sometimes our Costco has this brand otherwise I get it on Amazon
  • 1/4 cup raw honey If you want it sweeter you can double this. I get mine from a local farmer. If you do not have local access THIS is a good brand.
  • 2 TB vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp sea salt

Instructions

  • Put the quinoa, buckwheat flour, lemon juice, and water in a large mixing bowl, combine, and soak overnight or 8-12 hours. This soaking process breaks down the phytic acid and helps the grain and seed digest better on the gut - it also makes their nutrients more available to absorb!
  • After the mixture soaks, add the rest of the ingredients, stir to combine, and spread out on a silpat or parchment paper lined large jellyroll pan.
  • Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes, cool, and cut into bar size you want.
