Happy Sunday peeps! Still going strong with my Limpia detox (20th day!) and as I said in my last post, you can do this and still enjoy food. To show how this is possible, I am sharing a delicious sweet recipe that is nicely easy and quick to make and you’ll just love it!

Because I am on a more restrictive eating regimen, I cannot eat any flours or sugar making it a bit more difficult to have a nice dessert. But this is really not a problem, because there are many sweets that you can make. These Puffed Quinoa & Nut Bars are one of such recipes and absolutely a must. They are matching all the rules of the detox and it’s really delicious.

The ingredients are:

  • Dates,
  • Peanut Butter;
  • Vanilla Extract;
  • Cinnamon;
  • Salt;
  • Puffed quinoa;
  • Sunflower and Pumpkin Seeds;
  • Chopped Almonds.

Put the first 5 ingredients on a food processor then add the remaining ingredients and pulse until everything is well incorporated but you are still able to see some puffed quinoa, almonds and seeds.

Line an 8×8 inch pan with parchment or wax paper and press the mixture evenly into the pan with your hands. Place in the fridge for 2 hours to set.

Cut into bars and store in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

That’s it! Easy peasy.

Let me know what you think!
