Recipe Notes

1) This is a very basic puffed quinoa oat bar recipe. Feel free to add other ingredients to your liking. One that I found worked well are ; chocolate chips, raisins, dried cranberries or other dried fruits, chia seeds, flax seeds, and nuts.2) Make sure the bananas are thoroughly pureed. Chunks of banana will cause the oat bars to fall apart.
