Recipe by Bredan Brazier. Make these instead of buying the over priced ones at the health food store! These bars have a more traditional flavor than the others, yet the same health benefits as a nutrient-dense raw bar. Prep time does not include soak time for dates or soak time for quinoa. You can also sprout the quinoa for added health benefits. Rinse your quinoa, put in a dish and cover with lots of water. After 12 hours/over night rinse the quinoa, spread on a sheet/plate and cover with a dish towel. Rinse and respread every 6-8 hours. After 48 hours you will have a finished product.
