  • Prep

  • Ready In

  3. Stir the quinoa mixture with the remaining oats, flax seed, protein powder, sesame seeds, chia seeds, and salt in a large bowl until mixture is able to hold it's shape without sticking to you hands. Press mixture firmly into prepared baking pan and refrigerate until chilled, at least 1 hour.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • If mixture is too sticky, you can add more oats. If mixture is too crumbly, you can add more applesauce.
  • You could throw in some nuts, almond meal, chocolate chips, dry milk powder, cocoa, or dried fruits depending on your cravings/goals and the consistency of the mix. You could also substitute peanuts/peanut butter for the sunflower seeds, agave for the honey, or quick-cooking oats for the old fashioned variety.
