Healthified Chocolate Chip Quinoa Bars
For a crunchier texture, bake for an additional 5 minutes.
Variations: 1. Substitute raisins for the chocolate chips and add one tablespoon of cinnamon. 2. Substitute peanuts for the chocolate chips (or do half and half of each) and add 1/4 cup peanut butter to the ingredients in step 2. (You may have to warm the peanut butter for a few seconds in the microwave so it will be soft enough to incorporate with the other ingredients.) 3. Substitute dried fruit for the chocolate chips and add one teaspoon of grated lemon or orange rind. (Just make sure the fruit is cut small enough that it doesn't prevent from the bars from sticking together.)
