Peruvian Superfood Protein Bars


By:  Alexandra England, Holistic  Educator – peruflow.ca

Lovely for a snack, these Peruvian Superfood Protein Bars are pure bliss! Great for road trips and so easy to make wherever you are. They are lush and hit those sweet cravings in the afternoon.

This recipe is vegan and gluten free, and makes a fantastic source of anti-oxidants, protein, fibre, and vitamins.

  • Toast Quinoa Flakes and almonds in oven at 350 °F for 15 minutes until brown
  • Process dates until small bits remain. Make sure the dates become dough like and stick together
  • Place almonds, Quinoa Flakes, and dates in a bowl
  • Warm Yacon Syrup and peanut butter together in a pot at low temperature
  • Pour Yacon Syrup and peanut butter into the almonds, Quinoa flakes, and dates
  • Once mixed, transfer to an 8×8 inch baking dish or small pan lines with plastic wrap or parchment paper
  • Press down until dough is flattened evenly ( This might take time, put some weight on top of dough to make it flat)
  • Cover with parchment or plastic wrap and let them become more solid in the freezer or fridge for 20 minutes
  • Remove dough from pan and chop into even bars ( around 7)
  • Store in the fridge and enjoy!

Don’t forget to serve with Yacon Syrup on top and surrounded by strawberries, bananas, peaches, and seasonal fruits to add colour and flow to your experience.
