Author Notes

These bars are gluten free, refined sugar free and oil free. The only fat is the natural fat in the quinoa. They are packed with slow release energy and lean proteins as well as essential amino acids. You can buy quinoa flakes in any health shop or online although I am sure you could replace them with gluten free oats too.
These bars are the perfect summer day breakfast. They keep best in the fridge or even the freezer. You can eat them on the go or balanced with a cup of coffee or a smoothie. You can drown them in ice cold almond milk or crumble them over coconut yoghurt and garnish them with berries. —Yolanda Hinchiffe
