We always love new recipes, especially when they are created with love! Emily Sawyer, a holistic nutritionist from Toronto created these delicious ‘Lotus Squares’ using our Quinoa Granola and made with only three other ingredients. It’s a simple, no bake recipe and makes the perfect grab-and-go snack.
These squares are full of protein, contain no refined sugar and can contain no nuts if you switch the almond butter for sunflower seed or pea butter. We love the taste of ‘healthy’, don’t you?
1 package of Spiced Pumpkin Quinoa Granola
1 cup of almond butter (or other nut butter)
1/3 cup of date syrup (Date Lady
1 tbsp. of water
In a small sauce pan, heat almond butter and whisk in 1 tbsp. of water until warmed. Remove from the heat and whisk in the date syrup. Pour the mixture over the granola and fold in with a spatula. Use your hands and work in all of the ingredients until thoroughly combined.
Press mixture into a 9×9 pan lined with parchment paper. Place in the fridge for at least an hour, or until firm, and cut into squares.
