  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 3/4 cup creamy peanut (or other kind of nut) butter
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 2 flax eggs 
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup toasted IntegriPure® Organic Quinoa, ground into flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • Pinch of sea salt

  • chocolate sauce (optional):
    • 1/4 cup coconut oil
    • 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
    • 2 teaspoons maple syrup


    • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 8 x 8 baking pan with parchment and set aside.
    • Beat together applesauce and almond butter until creamy. Add sugar, vanilla, and flax eggs, and beat until combined.
    • Add to quinoa flour, baking soda and salt, mixing until incorporated.
    • Transfer batter to the prepared baking pan. Spread evenly into the corners of the pan using a spatula. Bake on the center rack for 20 - 24 minutes.
    • If you're using the chocolate sauce, quickly whisk the ingredients together and set aside until bars are done baking.
    • Let the bars cool in pan completely before topping with chocolate sauce (if using). Transfer to the fridge and chill for at least 30 minutes. Slice into bars and enjoy!
    • With chocolate sauce, store the bars in the fridge. If not topping with chocolate, bars can be left at room temperature.
