Crunchy Quinoa PB Bars

I hope everyone had a great long weekend! 🙂

I created this recipe because my family and I are very grab and go. These bars/squares are perfect to grab when you are on the run. The peanut butter, almonds, and chia seeds also pack in the protein so they keep your hunger satisfied!

Combine Ingredients (serves 16):

  • 2 cups Puffed Quinoa (cereal)

  • 1/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
