I'll usually make a huge batch of these and freeze them, then grab one for a healthy snack.

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spread oats, quinoa, almonds, and chia seeds on a baking sheet.

  • Toast in the preheated oven, stirring halfway through, until golden brown, about 15 minutes.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

These were amazing! I made them mainly for my kids but they turned out to be a lifesaver for me when I'm in a rush out the door to get to my college classes. I love that they incorporate two ingredients I love; chia seeds and quinoa. I made 2 ever so slight adjustments: I only had creamy peanut butter, and I didn't have flax meal so I substituted 1 mashed banana and it worked like a charm. Bonus: all 5 kids love them too! Thank you, this one's a keeper. Read More

These turned out great! Instead of chocolate chips, I substituted 3 tablespoons cocoa in the mix. I’ve been purchasing granola bars at the grocery for a few years now, and realized how much soy is used. Read More

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. Read More
