Coco-Pops No Bake Bars

I was inspired to create this after seeing a recipe on the Super Healthy Kids website. Together with my son, Nate, we were able to re-create a childhood memory of mine, Coco Pops, into a guilt-free, refined sugar free, nutritious bar that the kids can enjoy as a lunch box snack.


½ cup sunflower seed butter
½ cup raw honey
50g unsweetened chocolate
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1¼ cups rolled oats
2¼ cups puffed quinoa


Prepare baking dish, 9cm x 13cm, by lining with baking paper and set aside.

Place the sunflower butter, honey and chocolate in a saucepan and on medium heat melt until it is all well combined. Stir in the vanilla extract.

Remove saucepan from the heat and then mix in the oats so that it is well combined. Add the quinoa and mix until well combined.

Transfer mixture into prepared dish and set in fridge for 1 hour. Can be stored in well sealed glass container for 2 weeks in the fridge.

Makes 15 bars
