6 Ingredient Almond-Chia Vegan Bars

Servings 8 bars

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups old-fashion oats use gf if needed
  • 1/2 cup roasted almonds
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp uncooked quinoa
  • 1/4 cup agave nectar
  • 1/3 cup creamy peanut or almond butter

  2. Warm agave and peanut butter/almond butter in small sauce pan on low heat. Stir together. Pour over dry ingredients and mix together.

  3. Transfer mixture to 8x8 pan lined with sheet of parchment paper or plastic wrap on bottom so that you can lift bars out easily.

  5. Chill in freezer for 30 minutes so bars can harden.
