Strawberry Rhubarb Quinoa Breakfast Bars

My love of Rhubarb runs deep! Like REAL deep... so deep that I named my cat Rhubarb when I was like four years old! There is something about it that warms my heart! It reminds me of Summer, my Grandma and Mom, and delicious treats!



Every year my mom gives like 14,633,856 stalks of rhubarb from her garden. Rhubarb really goes crazy during the warm summer months! I can't wait to have my own garden some day. One of the first things I will plant will be rhubarb. As if we need more!? But like I said, it just warms my heart!

So needless to say I am always trying out new rhubarb recipes! This one is on the top of my list! It is chewy and moist (hate this word but how else do we really describe it?) and delish!



Strawberry Rhubarb Quinoa Breakfast Bars-

  • 1 1/2 cups gluten free quick cooking oats
  • 1 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup hemp seeds
  • 1 cup mashed bananas (about two bananas)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons sunflower seed butter
  • 2 tables spoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cups chopped strawberries
  • 1/2 cup chopped rhubarb

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9″x 9″ baking sheet with parchment paper and grease the sides with cooking spray.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the oats, quinoa, sugar, baking powder, and hemp seeds.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix the banana, nut butter, eggs, lemon juice and vanilla. Pour this mixture over the dry ingredients, mixing everything together until fully incorporated. The batter should be moist, but not runny. Fold in the strawberries and rhubarb. 
  4. Transfer the batter into the prepared pan and smooth with a spatula.
  5. Bake on the center rack for 25 – 35 minutes until the bars are golden brown and firm to the touch.
  6. Remove and let cool completely in the pan, then remove and slice into squares (or rectangles). Store in an airtight container for 4 – 5 days.
Enjoy!
