Toasted Granola Bars with Chia and Flax Seeds

I have updated this recipe due to many questions. You can find the 
update and answers to the questions HERE I hope you enjoy the recipe :)

I hope you guys had a fantastic long weekend!!!

Even though I didn't exactly "celebrate" the 4th this weekend, we may or may not have gone a little overboard with wine on Saturday night.

I'm sorry for any crazy Instagrams that night. There should really be a rule to not drink and Instagram.

I wont be drinking for the next 5.983 years.

I really don't get how people can think that is fun to do every weekend. We were literally useless all day yesterday.

But if one good thing came from it, it at least jumped us into gear of being healthy. All I want to do is eat these granola bars and salad. And bring on the water!!

It's nice to feel alive today.

We are also going on a bike ride later today.

Ill keep you posted on where we end up passing out.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaanyway, enough about my stupidity over the weekend!

I am sharing these granola bars over at Cooking Quinoa today, so head on over there to get the recipe :)

I'll see you here Wednesday again for another delicious cupcake recipe too!

  1. lol! The cucumber on the floor comment was hilarious ;)

  2. Found you from I am Baker. These bars look really good. I'm just going to have to bookmark your blog, I guess, sigh. :-)

    1. Haha aww you are so sweet!! Thank you so much!! I appreciate the very sweet comment :-)

  3. I made these delicious Toasted Quinoa bars a few days ago, and although my family and I loved the flavor they don't stick together. In fact, 3 days of sitting in the fridge hasn't hardened them in the slightest, as I had hoped. They fall apart almost immediately upon eating them. I since have crumbled all of the bars and simply made them into a yummy granola to put on top of yogurt, cottage cheese etc. Ideally, I would like them as a bar - a quick grab & go snack. I wondered if you had any suggestions on how to make them stick together and stay in a "bar" form? More honey? A couple eggs and then baking them??? Thanks :)

    1. Hi there! I am so sorry you had issues with these sticking together! It seems as though a few people have had that same issue. I will need to go back and see what we can do to fix that. I would try adding more honey (3/4 cup - 1 cup) and see if that helps. I am so sorry again! Thanks for stopping by and letting me know!

  4. Are u sure we can use Quinoa uncooked ?
    I made this.The Bar do not stick together.Also they are hard to eat.I wonder is it due to uncooked quinoa ?
    Any suggestion to fix them so can be eaten.

    1. The quinoa is definitely uncooked :) I updated the recipe to fix the problem of not sticking together. You can find that recipe here:

      Sorry for the confusion and I appreciate your feedback. Good luck!
