All Natural Quinoa Protein Energy Bars. This All Natural Protein Bar recipe makes for a nutritionally dense snack that packs a punch when it comes to fighting off cravings or a growling belly. These are high in protein, thanks to the quinoa, the almond or peanut butter, flax, and sunflower seeds. Place pan in the oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until grains appear toasted and smell fragrant. Remove from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes.

Quinoa is also a complete protein so it contains all the amino acids needed to build protein, making these bars the perfect pre or post workout snack. Add quinoa and water to a small sauce, cover and bring to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer and cook approximately 15 minutes or until all water has been. The idea of an energy bar is so appealing. Something you can throw into your bag to fish out when hunger strikes.

The prepackaged energy bars that you find at your local. Disclaimer: These quinoa energy bars are not healthy. The word quinoa seems to imply health and nutrition so I want to make sure that’s clear up front. Someone commented on one of my granola bar recipes recently that they were just as unhealthy as store bought bars.

That’s why we developed these homemade energy bars to keep us focused throughout the day: Crunchy almonds are combined with smooth almond butter, cranberries, quinoa and oats to make chewy bars. If you don’t want to make a QUINOA bars recipe, ‘cause it’s just not your thang, I even have an oatmeal slow cooker superfood homemade protein bar recipe that you can try! OR a pumpkin oatmeal breakfast bars. Protein bars are a daily staple in my snacking life. Since I’ve started working out regularly, I’m in need of a healthy high protein snack several times a day.

I’ve moved away from buying expensive high protein energy bars from the stores, for several reasons. They were super EXPENSIVE! ($3-$5 for a single bar!). Try these Quinoa Chia Seed Protein Bars”] These protein bars contain only all-natural ingredients, and are also gluten free, dairy free and can be made vegan-friendly.

Additionally, each bar comes in at 275 calories with 10 grams of protein.

If you prefer plant-based proteins, avoid choosing almond milk, hemp milk, flax milk, or rice milk for your breakfast protein during the weight-loss phase, because the unsweetened versions are very light on both calories and protein and they won’t hold you until lunch.

  • Thank you so much! I didn’t know there’s quinoa flour & crispies. I love Quinoa. I’ll definitely buy these. I’m tired of making everything with rice flour. I can’t handle Gluten, I was searching for some new alternatives. Thank you ❤❤❤

  • I used to buy Bonne Maman jams long time ago and stopped buying them when I found out that they had quiet some sugar. Are the Bonne Maman jams now sugar free?

  • The peanut butter choco bars are super delicious. I was low on coconut sugar, so I swapped it for pure maple syrup. I also baked mine in a rectangle-shape silicone 12 muffin mold. The baking time was extended by seven minutes but they came out perfectly.


  • For the peanut butter bars could I substitute the quinoa flour for almond flour? Or tapioca flour? Or cassava flour? That’s all I have lol

  • Thanks Alyssa:), please can u tell me what is the reference of your food processor, I really want to get one of this. I would appreciate it very much:)

  • You said here(last one) baking powder where in the recipe link it’s baking soda! Any ways I love you videos and I’m marking peanut butter ones

  • First of all you should know people make a recipe at home so that they have to spend less, if you have to spend so much then it’s better to get it from store..there’s no sense of this video

  • The human body needs vitamin B12, only found in animal food. If you get deficient, you become gradually very tired. To not get undernourished, vegans should eat supplements. Some prepared vegetarian foods have vitamin B12 in them.

    Not eating meat when growing up doesn’t only make you slim. It makes ou tiny too. Since Asians have started to eat more meat, they have become taller.

  • Any replacements that I could use instead of dates? They are very high in carbs and natural sugars and also very expensive… if anyone has any ideas I would live to hear them ��

  • These are not healthy at all! These snacks are high in sugar and full of refined carbs. This is so misleading! Overtime eating these foods will cause high cholesterol!

  • It looks so easy when it is already done. I guess fried potato is my level. And I got doubts that this recipe is better then my fried potato.

  • These look amazing but I would not call them healthy, the first one has coconout oil (which is not as healthy as they seem to make it look and in fact has more saturated fat than butter), then you use sugar and lots of nuts, these are treats and not healthy snacks, if you want a healthy snack go eat an apple or some other fruit. Cheers

  • I have to say that instructions are not clear. I made this twice with less water with dates and got even softer than last batch. Doesn’t hold itself at all. Disappointing especially because it took time to make. What type of dates do you use? Do you heat the paste once everything is mixed?

  • Amazing recipes ❤️❤️ Is there an alternative to Quinoa flour? I am allergic to quinoa but I would love to bake these bars… Does anyone know a good substitute? Thanks a lot xx��

  • botanical fact: gluten free means no grains (barley, wheat, rye, oats, corn, amaranth, and rice are all grains). Grains require gluten (the stored energy inside the grain) that allows it to germinate and sprout. without gluten, we wouldn’t have grains. The FDA only requires labeling any item with (barley wheat or rye because they have a specific gluten called gliadin which causes villas atrophy (aka leaky gut aka intestinal permeability) they are all sprayed with glyphosate (carcinogenic poison)
    And the other glutens in rice, oats, corn and amaranth will prevent your gut from ever healing. Gluten free is only technically possible if you get rid of ALL GRAINS.. NEJM and have 100s of studies that prove grains are linked to the onset of every auto-immune disease today. We now have over 130 autoimmune diseases because of the grains humans are consuming in our SAD Standard American Diets. And this video is in credibly dangerous and misleading to anyone who is genetically predisposed to an autoimmune disease. Calling Oats “gluten free” is a falsehood and a lie.

  • Love these. I have been snacking on broccoli dipped in hummus for too long lol. I need to stop being lazy on my snacks and make a nice big batch of something like this. ��Thanks for sharing. ��������

  • I tried this today
    Followed your recipe n method
    All well, but despite proper freezing, could not properly cut them as u show
    And they became quite soft
    Wonder what i need to do

  • For people saying the nuts are expensive: Use sunflower and or pumpkin seeds instead. There will be other seeds you can use too. They are high in protein and energy and micro nutrients. Toast the seeds in a lightly greased frying pan to make them taste nutty.

  • Mine got too soft. I think you either need to soak dates in less water or cook a bit more. Apart from that this is the extremely delicious! And in my area they come out way cheaper than similar prepacked bars, not to mention that these bars tastes million times better than those in store. We make it every now and than as a treat. ��

  • Tried this. Turned out sticky and mushy didn’t set well. Also was a bit too sweet for my liking. I think I need to reduce the honey. Otherwise overall taste was good.

  • Hummmmmmmmmmm did everything right, turned out soft and not hard, put in oven to dry out some, still soft. Oh didn’t use any cardamon powder, though I doubt it would make any difference. Will eat it, as it is an expensive yet nutritious snack. Any tips what went wrong?????

  • i tried this and the thing got stuck to the container i was using and after a billion tries of getting it out the container it broke so we had to throw the whole thing away ��

  • Tried this recipe today, the taste came out just fine, however it did not get set as shown in the video. It stayed limp and soft even after couple of hours of refrigeration. Any suggestions @hebbars kitchen?

  • Make sure the heat is completely off and the mixture is cooled before adding honey,honey should never be heated.Better avoid it altogether.

  • I want to try the apricot oatmeal bar first. Where do get the flax egg? I am new to the healthy eating so I am not familiar with it. Where can I get it or how to make it?

  • Yes lovely I want one ☝️ 2or3 but it’s loaded with sugar,and you call this healthy,looks like sugar 15 grams a serve.and then again your name sounds middle eastern,and that’s why it’s sugar loaded,no pun intended

  • These all look very tasty, but after checking out the linked recipes and the nutrition facts, they don’t seem particularly healthy. I wish they had a bit less fat and more fiber and protein to help keep me feeling full longer. Not sure how this would affect consistency, but incorporating something like Chia seeds as a fat source could provide healthy fats and loads of fiber! cocoa powder is another good source of fiber and it can add a ton of flavor to treats. I have no clue how (or if) it would work, but it’d be cool to incorporate Greek yogurt to boost protein content. Maybe it could be subbed for some of the nut butters or other wet/binding ingredients? not sure if they’d need to be refrigerated because of it tho. Including something like blackberries or raspberries would be another nice way to introduce a little sweetness and a ton of fiber, but this may also reduce shelf life or require they stay refrigerated.

  • your teeth are going to need to be in proper working order. there is no peanut butter to cushion the blow of all those nuts. you might be needing dentures by the end.
