Recipe: Quinoa Blueberry Oatmeal Breakfast Bars
It’s Saturday again and Central Market day! Love walking there after church and just looking at all the fresh fruits and produce on the shelves :) I found blueberries on sale today for $3.95 a punnet so I decided to make blueberry bars for next week’s breakfast! Dont you just love it when cooked blueberries burst and pop out of their skins in your mouth? :)
1 cup quinoa flakes
1/2 cup cooked quinoa
1/2 cup oat flour
1/4 cup oats
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
1 teaspoon organic ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Whisk the dry ingredients together. Add in the following ingredients and mix well.
1 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup olive oil
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup rice, hemp or nut milk/ vanilla yoghurt
1/4 teaspoon apple cidar vinegar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Beat until smooth. The batter will be thick and sticky.
1 cup wild blueberries
Stir to distribute.
Plop the batter into the cake pan and using a rubber spatula press the batter into the corners and smooth the top.
Bake in the center of the preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes or so, until firm. The edges will be golden, the center should be firm to the touch.
Makes 9 large bars or eat straight out of the pan like me :) Was supposed to keep it for 1 week of brekkie next week but Im only left with 2 bars :( Whoops!
Im going to make Peanut Butter granola next! :D
P.S. Thank you for being such a good friend and calling up regularly to make sure everything is fine even though you are so busy with work! :) Very much appreciated! xx
