PREPARATION

  • Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).
  • To make the flax eggs, combine the flax meal and water in a small bowl and mix well. Set aside for 10 minutes to gel.
  • In a large bowl, combine the oats, quinoa, baking powder, salt, yacon syrup, coconut oil, vanilla, flax eggs, and bananas, and mix until well-combined.
  • Divide the base dough equally between 4 medium bowls.
  • Add the peanut butter and chocolate chips to 1 bowl and mix until combined.
  • Add the apple, walnuts, cinnamon, and nutmeg to another bowl and mix until combined.
  • Add the carrots, cinnamon, nutmeg, and almond butter to another bowl and mix until combined.
  • Add the almond butter, strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries to the last bowl and mix until combined.
  • Grease 2 9×13-inch (23×33-cm) baking pans with nonstick spray. Transfer the bar mixtures to the pans, packing each mixture into half of a pan with a spoon or spatula.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes, until the edges are slightly golden brown.
  • Remove the pans from the oven and let the bars cool for 20 minutes, then refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, or up to 5 days. Gently cut each flavor into 6 bars, then remove from the pans with a spatula.
  • Enjoy!
