Apple Mulberry Breakfast Squares
Whether served warm or cool, these breakfast squares are an excellent natural power food to start the day off well.
½ Cup Quinoa Flakes
1½ tsp Cinnamon Powder
½ tsp Ginger Powder
½ tsp Sea Salt
½ Cup chopped Walnuts
¼ Cup Navitas Naturals Sprouted Omega Blend
3 Tbsp Navitas Naturals Mulberries (or Raisins, or combination)
1 Tbsp Coconut Oil
3 Fuji, Gala, etc... large, sweet apples
1 Cup Oat Flour
1 tsp Lemon Zest
3 Tbsp Yacon Whole Fruit Powder
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 8x8” glass baking pan.
Use a hand-held grater to grate the apples into fine shreds (peels are fine to include). Collect 3 cups total and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, combine oat flour, omega flour, quinoa flakes, cinnamon, ginger and salt. Sprinkle in lemon zest, then add the apples, coconut oil and yacon syrup. Mix in the apples, walnuts and mulberries until incorporated. Spread in prepared baking pan, cover, and set inside refrigerator for 20 minutes to allow the quinoa flakes to soften.
When ready, bake the mixture at 350 degrees for 40 minutes, or until top turns golden brown. Cut while still warm into desired shape. Makes eight 2”x4” squares.
To make these bars gluten-free, use an all-purpose gluten-free flour mix in place of the oat flour – it will not affect the flavor.
