Almond & Quinoa Bliss Bars

Almond & Quinoa Bliss Bars Recipe
Preheat oven to 350*
2 c rolled oats
½ c unsweetened coconut
½ c quinoa flour
1 c  nuts (almond, walnut, cashew, peanut)
½ c seeds (chia, flax, sesame)
½ c tahini
1 c unsweetened peanut butter
1 c honey (use 3/4 agave if vegan)
1 tsp vanilla extract
–       Mix dry ingredients in a big bowl.
–       Combine tahini, peanut butter, honey and vanilla extract in a glass bowl. Microwave for 1 minute.
–       Combine wet and dry ingredients.
–       Spread the mixture on a greased cookie sheet or pyrex pan.  (I greased with coconut oil, you can use butter, earth balance or the ever-so-easy-but-must-be-awful-for-you PAM)
–       Bake at 350* for 15 minutes OR leave raw and cut into bars.
Makes about 20 servings.The bars freeze for months!  I eat them on training days, race days or sprinkle on top of yogurt or in soymilk.
