1 1/2 cup rice puffs   24 g
120 g quinoa flakes   1 1/4 cup
1 1/4 cup oats, organic, gluten-free   120 g
1/2 cup grated coconut   40 g
1/3 cup almonds, finely chopped   45 g
2/3 cup dried cranberries, finely chopped   90 g
1/4 cup flax seeds, ground   45 g
3 eggs size large    
2 tbsp canola oil   30 mL
6 tbsp maple syrup   90 mL
4 tbsp almond butter   65 g


  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C/375°F. Line a 20 cm (8 in) square baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the rice puffs, quinoa flakes, rolled oats, grated coconut, almonds, dried cranberries, and flax seeds.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the eggs, canola oil, maple syrup, and almond butter. Mix well with a whisk until smooth.
  4. Add the wet mixture to the dry one then mix well to ensure all ingredients are coated.
  5. Place mixture into prepared baking pan. Press the mixture so it is compact. Bake in the middle of the oven for about 25-30 min. It is also possible to bake the mixture in a muffin pan. To do so, adjust baking time to 12-15 min. Take the pan out of the oven, then let cool at least 1/2 h. Cut into 12 bars then serve.


The granola bars can be kept in airtight containers at room temperature for up to 1 week or 1 month in the freezer.
