  • Prepare Rice and Quinoa according to package directions and set aside.

  • Coat an 8” x 8” square pan with non-stick cooking spray.

  • Preheat oven to 300° F.

  • In a food processor, puree the dates* with ¼ cup of the oats until paste or dough-like (should form a ball).

  • Place this into a medium-sized bowl and work in the remaining oats, almonds and Cooked Rice and Quinoa.

  • In a small saucepan, warm the honey and peanut butter until hot and carefully pour into the bowl over the date mixture, stirring well to combine.

  • Place the mixture into the prepared pan and press down until very firmly packed and flattened.

  • Bake 10-12 minutes.

  • Remove from oven and transfer to a cooling rack. Cut into 12 bars and enjoy.

  • For chocolate drizzle: Combine chocolate chips and olive oil in a microwave-safe bowl and Heat in 15 second increments, Stirring each time, until chocolate is Melted. Using a fork, drizzle this chocolate sauce over cooled bars.


Recipe Tips

*If your dates don’t feel sticky and moist, soak them in warm water for a few minutes and drain before pureeing. Also, you can substitute other nuts for almonds or use a combination of nuts in these delicious bars!
