QUINOA AND SEEDS BARS
The best part about these Seed and Quinoa Bars is there is no baking! Yep, these vegan, raw treats are delicious, healthy and anyone can make them including children. What I love most is that you can adapt the recipe to add any nuts or seeds you prefer. If you decide you prefer almonds instead of sunflower seeds, then substitute it. However if you are making these for kids, keeping them nut free means they can take them to school for morning tea.
