Before I get into the recipe I want to share a few things wit you.

I have great news!

I am working really hard on a few projects so that you can benefit from my recipes and blog even more.

  • I am developing an app where you will be able to create shopping lists according to the recipes you will like to cook and bake. The app will have recipes that will cater those on a vegan, dairy free, gluten free diet.
  • I am including a Meal Plans section to my blog. Once a week ( or so I hope) I will be developing a meal plan. The meal plan will include a shopping list and alternatives for certain ingredients for those following specific diets.
  • I am including a conversion table for those using the metric system. I know in the US we use a totally different approach when it comes to measuring ingredients so I will include that too for those in Europe and other places.
  • I am going to improve my news letter, adding some more healthful information, as well as share some tidbits about the process of blogging.
  • I am going to try very hard to start incorporating both English and Spanish videos on certain recipes. A lot of work goes into this but it is something that I am really excited about and want to start doing.

Well there you have it. A lot of projects in the horizon for the upcoming weeks but I hope that many of you can benefit from them.

Onto the recipe.

Have you ever made your own bars before? I love making snacks of this type and these Superfood Lemon Bars are to die for.

Wether they are bars, bites, or balls having healthy, raw snacks that can both work as a dessert or as a snack it is easier than you think. Truly the only thing you need is a good quality food processor. Granted it can be a bit expensive but you if you are going to start making things of this nature, as well as nut butters, you need a good quality food processor. Cheap ones won’t last too long and you will end up wasting your $30-$40 dollars in the long run. Trust me on this, it happened to me twice!

These bars are a superfood. Besides having really healthy ingredients I also added turmeric powder, which is a very powerful antioxidant. Turmeric powder is used in Indian cuisine a lot but once in a while I like to use this powder to color my desserts, especially when using lemon.

Well I hope you get to make these Superfood Lemon Bars. They are sensational to say the least so go to your kitchen and make these, you will thank me later :-)

Enjoy!

Bars

Topping

Directions:

Line a square 8x8 baking pan with unbleached parchment paper and set aside.

With a spatula, press mixtures onto the prepared baking pan making sure it is evenly distributed.

In a small bowl add the topping ingredients and mix through. Pour this mixture over the bars and place in the refrigerator for at least one hour for the topping to solidify.

  1. Is the quinoa cooked or raw? I am assuming it’s raw but did not want to assume! Thanks!

  2. Do you get the nutritional value of the quinoa if it isn’t cooked? Also, I think rinsing it would be a good idea, there is a bitter coating on the seed and if you don’t it might taste wrong. I’m super excited about this recipe and can’t wait to try!

    • Yes I get the nutritional value while dried. It tasted fine but next time I will rinse it and see if there is any difference. I hope you like the recipe. Thanks for stopping by.

  3. Hi, I’m definitely trying this recipe! But I must have missed a step.. when do I mix the coconut/honey/peanut butter with the rest of the ingredients? Before it goes in the oven? Thanks!

  4. Oh my goodness, this looks AH-MAZING! I cannot wait to try this out! I’d probably make half a recipe though as 10 pounds seems like a lot.

  5. When do you add the peanuts? Thanks!

  6. How many cups is a serving? Thanks!

  7. On Pinterest I found one link that had just the picture. Also, when I found it the ingredient list before getting to your site showed 5 penut butter cups. I know that was wrong but thought you should know. I am a big fan but if I did not know your work already I would not have pinned it because of penut butter cups.

  8. I make granola every week and I never thought to put quinoa in it! Thanks!

  9. Oh wow! What a great change from my normal breakfast. I’m going to make a big batch of this today. How great that it lasts so long!

  10. Okay I love this! I love quinoa in granola. I’d probably throw in mini reeses cups. They make those right? If not they need to so I can eat them by the handful!
