I decided to try and make them into bars so I started googling and found out that was a thing.
So here they are:
1 cup cooked quinoa, cooled
1 1/4 cup old fashioned oats
1 cup almonds; roughly chopped
1/3 cup flax seeds
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup coconut oil; melted
1/3 cup honey
3 tbs cocoa powder
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
1 in a bowl mix together quinoa, oats, almonds, flax seed and salt
2 stir in the coconut oil and honey
3 then fold in the chocolate chips and cocoa powder
4 cut parchment paper to cover the bottom of an 8x8 dish with a decent amount overhanging the edges
5 lightly spray it and then dump in the quinoa mixture
6 spread evenly in dish and cover top with overhanging parchment paper
7 then press down the quinoa mixture firmly
8 place in fridge for a few hours
9 then cut into bars and eat 'em up
can be stored in fridge for up to a week, covered
That's it, quick and easy way to not waste, my inability to measure quinoa, mistakes.
Also this past weekend we had a dinner date of face size pizza slices and olives :) Joshua is still on an olive kick from Turkey. Then we headed to a small place and went dancing. I love love dates with this man!
