Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 cups large flake oats
  • 3/4 cup dry quinoa
  • 1/2 cup seeds or chopped nuts
  • 1/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 2 T chia seeds
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup canned coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  2. Place oats, dry quinoa, and seeds/nuts on parchment lined baking sheet. Toast for 6 minutes.
  3. Sprinkle coconut on pan & toast everything 3 minutes longer, or until oats and coconut are lightly golden.
  4. Bring coconut oil, coconut milk, and maple syrup to boil in heavy bottomed pot, and boil gently, stirring occasionally for about 15 minutes until candy thermometer reads 285 degrees F (140 degrees C). Don’t worry about it being this exact temperature. It’s not holding bars together so doesn’t need to be super precise.
  5. Put oats mixture and binder into a bowl. Add chia seeds and dried fruit. Stir well. Spread on parchment lined baking sheet to cool and crisp up.
