Ingredients 

• 1 cup Certified Gluten Free Oats
• 1 cup Quinoa Flakes
• 2/3 cup Almond Flour
• 2 Scoops Vanilla Protein Powder
• 1/4 cup Ground Chia Seeds
• 2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
• 3/4 tsp Sea Salt, fine

• 2 eggs, beaten
• 1 egg white, beaten
• 1/2 cup Cold-Pressed Unrefined Coconut Oil
• 1/3 cup Honey
• 1 Tbsp Vanilla

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9x13 inch glass-baking pan.
  2. Sift together in large bowl: Gluten Free Oats, Quinoa Flakes, Almond Flour, Protein Powder, Ground Chia (or hemp) Seeds, Cinnamon, Sea Salt, Pumpkin Seeds, and Dark Chocolate.
  3. Make small well in center of dry mixture. Add: beaten eggs, egg whites, coconut oil, honey, and vanilla.
  4. Squish/mix together with hands. Press into prepared baking dish. You do not have to press all the way to edges (will not spread while baking) if you want a thicker and chewier bar.
  5. Bake for about 30 minutes, or until edges look slightly golden.
  6. Let sit for at least 1 hour before slicing. As it cools, it holds together better.
