Quinoa Breakfast Bars!

Yet again, i have been making more of Lindsay's recipes. I am just obsessed i know! But they are all so good, she really is a genius! 

When i saw these i knew i wanted to make them. As part of my weight loss programme, i am trying to add more protein with less carbs to my diet. Quinoa is a brilliant protein rich carb and i have been searching for some good recipes.

Quinoa Breakfast Bars.

1/2 cup wholemeal flour,
1 cup cooked quinoa,
1 cup oats,
1/4 cup chopped nuts,
1/2 tsp cinnamon,
1/2 tsp baking soda,
1/3 cup peanut butter,
1/4 cup honey,
1 egg white,
1/3 cup applesauce,
1tsp vanilla,
1/2 cup raisin and cranberries.

Pre heat oven to 200 degrees.

1. Combine applesauce, vanilla, egg white, peanut butter and honey in a small bowl.
2. Add the remaining ingredients and stir until combined.
3. Spoon into greased 8x8 pan and bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
4. Let cool and cut into 6 bars.
5. Store in refrigerator.

Recipe adapted from Lindsay's.

I LOOVEE these bars, they are a great swap for flapjacks which i adore, the texture is so yummy. These are healthier because of the protein and more natural ingredients!
