Quinoa Chia Seed Protein Bars

Hope you all are having a fantastic weekend! Last week I was asked to create a unique, quinoa based recipe for the the fabulous blog Cooking Quinoa! If you have never visited Cooking Quinoa, you definitely need to head on over and check it out! Wendy, who owns the site, has so many incredible quinoa recipes, you could literally eat quinoa for breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinner without ever getting bored. Okay, maybe you would get a little bored, but seriously, she has so many delicious looking recipes, and I am dying to try them all!

For my guest post, I wanted to create something slightly out of the norm in terms of how quinoa is typically used, and after mulling it over and experimenting (aka-mess making) for a few days, I came up with these awesome Quinoa Chia Seed Protein Bars.

These bars come in at 275 calories each, and pack 10 grams of protein and 7 grams of fiber per serving. As far as taste goes, they taste awesome! Especially if you’re a granola fan. They’re crunchy, filling and perfect for those who are constantly on the go.

To get the full recipe, head on over to my post at Cooking Quinoa which you can find by clicking here.

    Just made these protein bars. Its a rainy Sunday morning here in Sunny So CA and I didn’t want to go out to get some ingredients I didn’t have. I used organic Agave instead of rice syrup and a little extra cinnamon as I didn’t have any cardamom. They turned out really YUMMY!!!! Thanks for sharing….I have been looking for a great homemade protein bar and will definitely make these again!

    Hi. I made these this morning and my wife adores them but she has a question; can the chia seeds be soaked first? Her teeth aren’t in the greatest shape and she says the seeds are too hard. What do you think? Thanks.
