Today’s WINNING recipe to meet Coach JC’s 10 WINNING Habits is Seedy Cherry-Quinoa Energy Bars. Is it post workout? Have I earned my carbs?
- 1 cup chopped almonds
- 1/2 cup raw quinoa
- 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
- 1/4 cup sunflower seeds
- 1 cup dried, tart cherries
- 2 tablespoons brown rice syrup
- 3/4 teaspoon fine-grain sea salt
- 2 tablespoons water
Preheat oven to 350°F and coat 8-by-8 baking pan with cooking spray. Line with parchment paper, leaving an overhang on all sides. Toast almonds, quinoa, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds on a rimmed baking sheet, stirring occasionally, until golden brown, 10–12 minutes. Let cool.
Reduce oven temperature to 200°F. Process cherries, brown rice syrup, sea salt and water in a food processor until smooth. Transfer to a medium bowl and stir in toasted almond mixture. Press firmly into prepared pan and bake until no longer sticky, 20–25 minutes. Let cool, then cut into bars. Recipe makes 16 servings at 1 bar each.
