Carrot Cake Quinoa Bars
I like creating recipes and using ingredients that are a little surprising or unique. I think it is fun and important to be willing to try new things. You never know what you might like! These bars are a fun way to eat quinoa, vegetables and fruit in bar form for breakfast, a snack or dessert! Plus, they are only sweetened with fruit, not sugar! I always like making recipes that sneak in as many vegetables or fruit as possible. You could easily replace the carrot with zucchini for a zucchini bread bar or omit the veggies and add chocolate chips or just include more raisins for a sweeter treat since as the recipe is, they aren't super sweet. Play around with the ingredients and see which combination you like best. While I used an egg, these could quickly be made vegan by subbing in a flax egg (1 Tbsp ground flaxseed meal mixed with 3 Tbsp water). Make these on the weekend and freeze them in individual baggies for a quick grab-and-go breakfast or snack/dessert during the week!

I believe everyone should eat balanced and not cut food groups if you don't medically need to. All foods can fit in a healthy diet. Unfortunately, I have to avoid gluten and also limit myself with dairy, so my goal is to provide healthy, gluten-free/dairy-free recipes so EVERYONE can enjoy all foods, even if you do have to cut out certain food groups. My recipes are encouraged for everyone to eat, not just for those with sensitivities/allergies! Most of my recipes can be easily converted by using real dairy and whole-wheat in place of my allergy-free substitutes.
