Total time: 
Serves: 8
  • ¼ cup cooked quinoa
  • 6 dates
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • ¼ cup almonds
  1. Puree the dates, almonds and quinoa in a food processor, pressing several times until you get a smooth paste.
  2. Transfer to a bowl, and add coconut oil, and tahini. Mix well with a spoon or clean hands until everything is completely incorporated.
  3. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  4. Wet your hands, take 2 tablespoons of the mixture, and form a bar. Place on a dish, and repeat with the rest.
  5. Refrigerate for at least 2 more hours, and eat as desired. You can also put them in the freezer 2 hours before eating, for a firmer bar.
  6. If you would like a more chocolatey taste, add as much cacao powder to the mixture, as you like.
