Are you looking for a quick, easy and healthy back to school treat for your kid’s lunchbox? Well look no further! This treat is super simple to make and you can store the cut bars in the freezer for up to two months. This recipe is also gluten, dairy and soy free- plus you can make it nut free by swapping out the peanut butter for sunflower seed butter. Here’s the details:
CHOCOLATE-PB CRUNCH BARS
3 cups QUINOA FLAKES (I use Ancient Harvest brand)
1 1/2 cup CHOCOLATE CHIPS, DAIRY FREE (I use Enjoy Life brand)
1 cup PEANUT BUTTER (I use Wild Friends brand)
1/2 cup MAPLE SYRUP
1/4 cup COCONUT OIL
- Melt the chocolate, peanut butter, syrup and oil, stirring until creamy and combined.
- In a large bowl, dump in the quinoa flakes and pour over the chocolate mixture. Mix well to fully combine.
- Spread evenly and push down flat into a 9×13 baking dish lined with parchment paper.
- Put in the freezer for 1 hour prior to cutting into 24 equal squares.
