Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Place almond milk, peanut butter, and maple syrup in a bowl. Mix until combined.
  3. Combine quinoa, oats, peanuts, and chia seeds together in a large bowl.
  4. Pour wet mixture overtop the dry ingredients and use a spatula to stir everything together.
  5. Pour mixture onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and use a spatula to spread everything out evenly. Press ingredients down so it is evenly spread and packed.
  6. Place baking sheet in the oven and bake for 20 minutes. The edges should be a slight golden color. If they are not, bake for an addition 5 to 10 minutes.
  7. Remove from the oven and set aside.
  8. Melt chocolate in a double boiler over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Turn to low heat once chocolate is completely melted.
  9. Pour chocolate overtop the quinoa and spread it out evenly.
  10. Place the baking sheet in the freezer for 10 to 15 minutes so the chocolate can harden.
  11. Remove from the freezer. Use a dull knife and/or your hands to break the bark into pieces.
  12. Store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator or the freezer until ready to serve.
