This recipe was inspired by The Thug Kitchen Cookbook, I am sure most of you have heard of it. If not, I suggest buying it on Amazon like, right now! Hilarious. I have never laughed so much at a cookbook! To put a twist on their recipe, I added canned pumpkin (because pumpkin is amazing) and some different nuts and dried fruit. I found you really need to let the bars cool in the fridge before cutting into a bar shape because if not… they will just fall apart. I enjoyed the bars with pumpkin, but it is optional!

Author: Tawnie Kroll

Ingredients

  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 1 1/4 cup chopped mixed nuts I used almonds, chopped pistachios & pepitas
  • 1/2 cup dried fruit I used raisins and diced up apricots
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp. dark brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • optional: 1 cup pumpkin puree

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9x13 inch baking dish with parchment paper (let some hang over the edge so you can lift easier when bars are done).
  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add the oats & quinoa, stir for 3 minutes or until lightly toasted. Meanwhile, combine the nuts/seeds & dried fruit in a large bowl. Pour in the oats & quinoa mixture + the salt and stir together.
  • In a small saucepan combine the honey, peanut butter (or any other nut butter you like), oil, sugar, vanilla and heat until everything is melted. (Optional to add the pumpkin puree also in this step). Pour this on the oat/nut mixture and stir until all ingredients are coated.
  • Pour this onto the prepared baking sheet and press down with a spoon to make sure it is even. Cook in the oven for 25-30 minutes. Let bars cool at room temp, and then cool further in the fridge. Once cold, cut into bars and keep in the fridge!
