No Bake Peanut Butter protein bars


8 Medjool Dates, pitted

1/2 cup raw almonds

1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds

1/2 cup uncooked quinoa

2 Tablespoons chia seeds

1 cup unsalted smooth peanut butter

1/4 cup raw honey

2 scoops vanilla protein powder

Makes 20-28. 

 1.  Cook the 1/2 cup quinoa.  I bring one cup of water to a boil then add quinoa and then reduce heat cover and let it set up.  Takes about 10 minutes.  While that is setting up then cut your dates into fourths then add to food processor till chopped.  Then add seeds and finely chop.  Then add cooked quinoa and blend together.  The mixture might get kind of thick, mix together best you can than put that mixture into a bowl add the peanut butter and honey and protein powder mix together with spoon.  Once mixed together then transfer to a baking pan (can use any size smaller the pan thicker the bars will be) .  Use fingers to press the mixture out and even then place in freezer.  Freeze for a couple of hours then cut into slices should make around 20 -28 bars depending on size of pan used. Keep in freezer and grab and go.
