Quinoa Cherry Bars [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

High Carb VeganVegan

Ingredients

  • 1 cup coarsely chopped almonds
  • 1/2 cup uncooked quinoa, rinsed and drained (it does not have to be dry before using)
  • 1/4 cup raw pumpkin seeds
  • 1/4 cup raw sunflower seeds
  • 1 cup dried cherries (unsweetened if possible)
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Preparation

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350°F and spray an 8×8-inch baking pan with non-stick cooking spray. Line with a parchment paper “sling”, leaving an overhang on two sides. Lightly spray again.
  2. Spread the almonds, quinoa, and both seeds on a baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Transfer to a medium bowl and let cool slightly. Reduce oven to 200°F.
  3. Place cherries, syrup, salt, and 2 tablespoons of water in a food processor and process until well blended (add a bit more water if needed). Add to nut-seed mixture and stir until well combined. Transfer to your prepared pan and press firmly and evenly. Bake until no longer sticky, 30-40 minutes. Let cool completely in pan.
  4. Using your “sling” as an aide, transfer bars to a cutting board. Place in the refrigerator and chill for several hours, or overnight. Cut into bars and serve.
