  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spread oats, quinoa, almonds, and chia seeds on a baking sheet.
  2. Toast in the preheated oven, stirring halfway through, until golden brown, about 15 minutes.
  3. Mix peanut butter, honey, and coconut oil together in a bowl until thoroughly combined. Mix in oat mixture, flaxseed meal, and salt until well combined. Press granola mixture into a 12x18-inch baking pan.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until bars set, about 5 minutes. Remove from oven; sprinkle with chocolate chips. Bake until chocolate is just melted, about 5 minutes. Spread melted chocolate evenly over bars with a rubber spatula.
  5. Place in the freezer until chocolate is firm, about 20 minutes; cut into bars.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Toasted flax seeds can be substituted for the flax seed meal.
  • A 9x13-inch baking pan can be used instead of the 12x18-inch pan if thicker bars are desired.

They are a very tasty snack. My daughter and husband loved them too. I ran out of chocolate chips so I mixed cocoa powder with melted coconut oil and spread it on top.
