Iron Bars

These bars are high in iron!

  • 1/4 cup quinoa, uncooked
  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup molasses
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 15 oz. can pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Cook quinoa as package directs. Meanwhile, roast almonds at 350 degrees until aromatic (about three minutes). Put almonds and pumpkin seeds into a food processor. Grind well. Add coconut oil and process, then add the cooked quinoa and process well. Add molasses, cinnamon, nutmeg, and pumpkin puree. When mixture is smoothly blended, stir in the chocolate chips and pulse twice. Pour into a greased 10 1/2″ cast-iron skillet. Bake at 300 degrees for 90 min, or until a knife poked into the center comes out clean. Cut when cool.
