Almond Butter Quinoa Bars (gluten free)

This was an experiment that turned out well. I enjoy peanut butter bars but wanted to make a healthier version. Like my grandson recently said, "Grandma has healthy treats!" :) I also made them gluten free which is an added bonus. You could add dark chocolate chips or coconut. I went for the plain version. I think they would freeze well too. They were moist and wonderful!


1 C almond butter (natural)
1/2 to 2/3 C honey (Depending on how sweet you want them.)
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 C quinoa flour
1 tsp baking powder
optional: dark choc. chips, coconut, or dried fruit.  

Directions: heat oven to 350

1. Combine all the wet ingredients together in a mixing bowl. Then stir in the dry ingredients in. 

2. Pour into a square (ceramic if possible) greased pan. 

3. Place in heated oven. Bake about 20 min till knife comes out clean. 

4. Cool prior to cutting  for easier cutting.
