cut Breakfast Bars on plateIt seems I'm the only quinoa fan in my family. Sometimes that causes me to have leftover quinoa hanging around. One way to get my family to enjoy some of this high fiber, vitamin-packed grain is to put it into breakfast bars. This recipe uses leftover or freshly cooked quinoa, and makes a great grab-and-go breakfast treat that everyone loves!


The consistency is that of a dense cake crossed with a muffin with a crispy top. I prefer mine to be very lightly sweetened, as my recipe follows. If you like things on the sweeter side, a little sprinkle of sugar (or your sweetener of choice) goes along nicely on top of this.

Hi Attosa,

That sure looks delicious and healthy, and I'm going to have to make this. I really like "grab and go" healthy foods like this too, besides being a healthy snack between meals.


Thank you for this recipe:)

Hi Suz! I love grab and go, too! The lack of time in the days can be so unfair, but meal prep like this is definitely fun and handy :) You are very welcome! :)

Quinoa is supposed to be an easy grow in the NW and is easy to pick up at the store. This looks good. Well try it. Thanks Attosa!!
