Seedy Cherry-Quinoa Energy Bars

Today we have a WINNING recipe for you so that you can WIN in your nutrition and WIN in life!

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?

Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

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.

    "If you want to WIN more in life you are in the right place my friend! I am blessed and privileged everyday to help people WIN more in life.

    I got my start as the youngest Director of Strength & Conditioning at the Division I level at Oral Roberts University and have been blessed to COACH professional athletes from the NFL, NBA, MLB, MLS, and WNBA through Dynamic Sports Development. As an ENTREPRENEUR I then started Bootcamp Tulsa to help women WIN in their Fitness, Nutrition & in Life. On a daily basis I now run our Non-Profit, 501 (c) (3), Fit First Responders serving those that serve us everyday, our Police Officers, Firefighters, Medics and national Guard.

    If I'm not helping people WIN through my Performance Coaching you will find me motivating people on stage through my MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKING in churches, companies, universities and athletic organizations. I even took some of that motivation and combined it with a winning game plan to author a few books. I love helping people WIN but there is nothing I'm more passionate about then being a FATHER to my beautiful daughter and a HUSBAND to my hot wife."
