Ingredients

  • 1 cup quinoa uncooked
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 2 cups chopped nuts and seeds I used a combo of pumpkin seeds and cashews.
  • 2 cups sliced strawberries frozen will work if you defrost them first
  • 1 cup non-dairy vanilla yoghurt
  • 3/4 cup tahini or any nut butter
  • 2 ripe mashed bananas or 1/2 cup pitted dates (chopped)
  • 1/2 cup aquafaba liquid from cooking legumes
  • 1/4 cup flax seeds
  • 3-5 tbsp sugar free strawberry jam or any jam you want! I liked it without the jam but my family likes food sweeter then I do.)

Instructions

  1. Heat your oven to 350 Fahrenheit. Into a large bowl add the uncooked quinoa, rolled oats, nuts and seeds, sliced strawberries, non-dairy vanilla yogurt, aquafaba, flax seeds, mashed bananas (or dates), and the tahini. Give it a good stir. I prefer to roll up my sleeves and give it a quick (1 minute) massage as if I were massaging kale. But then again I like to play with my food. 

  2. Allow to rest ten minutes. 

    Line a 9X13 baking pan with parchment. 

  3. Pour in the batter, it will be quite wet. Smooth the top with a spatula. Place in the middle rack of your oven. 

    Bake for 20 minutes, remove from the oven and brush the jam over the top and bake for 10 more minutes. Then shut off the oven and leave the door closed for 30 minutes. 

    Remove from the oven. Allow to completely cool before slicing. Will keep a couple of weeks stored covered in the refrigerator.
