Clean Eating: Banana Quinoa Breakfast Bars

1 cup steel cut oats

1 cup quinoa

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp cinnamon, a pinch of sea salt

3 large ripe bananas, mashed

2 tbsp ground flaxseed

3 tbsp natural nut butter

1 tbsp coconut oil

2 tbsp pure maple syrup

Optional: 1/4-1/2 cup add-ins like chocolate chips, coconut, chopped dried fruit.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray or grease a 9 x 9 baking dish with coconut oil. In a large bowl combine oats, quinoa, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Add in bananas, flax, peanut butter, coconut oil and maple syrup. Stir until well-combined. Sprinkle with optional add-ins. Let batter sit for 10 mins to let flax absorb some liquid. Add batter to baking dish and spread out evenly. Bake for 25 mins or until edges are crisp and center is cooked through. Let sit for 20 mins before cutting into 9-12 squares and allow to cool completely. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days or freeze for longer.
