Directions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350ºF (180ºC). Line 12×8 pan with parchment paper.

Step 2

Add quinoa, oatmeal and almonds to baking dish; stir to combine. Toast in oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until mixture is just starting to turn brown, being careful not to overcook. Let cool.

Step 3

In large bowl, briefly microwave peanut butter and honey, until liquid enough to combine easily. Stir in canola oil and cinnamon. Add quinoa mixture and hemp hearts to peanut butter mixture; stir until combined.

Step 4

Scrape batter into parchment paper–lined baking pan, spreading evenly. It won’t be very thick but that’s OK.

Step 5

Bake at 350ºF (180ºC) for 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool; cut into squares.

Step 6

If you have a gluten allergy or intolerance, make sure you use rolled oats that are certified gluten free.
