GOJI SUNFLOWER MESQUITE ENERGY BARS...AND VARIATIONS! (gluten free, vegan)

yield: 16 approx. 1"x4" bars

3 c gluten free puffed or crisped cereal (I used puffed millet, feel free to try using puffed amaranth, puffed or crisped rice, any other puffed/crispy cereal, like Perky's Nutty Flax or Nutty Rice)

3 T chia seed

1/2 c sunflower seeds, toasted (or other seed/chopped nut)

3 T goji berries, lightly chopped (or other dried fruit)

1/4 t sea salt

1/4 c + 3 T brown rice syrup

1 T sunflower oil (or other oil)

3 T mesquite flour

optional, for extra vitamins!: 1/4 tsp vitamin C crystals 

  1. Place cereal in a large bowl.
  2. Warm brown rice syrup and sunflower oil together over low heat, whisking until mixed.  Remove from heat. NOTE: if using flax oil, warm brown rice syrup alone, remove from, then stir in flax oil.  Flax oil should never be directly heated.
  3. Quickly add mesquite flour, salt, vitamin C crystals, and any additional spices to warm syrup/oil mixture, and stir until well combined.  Work quickly, mixture coats cereal and other ingredients best when still warm.
  4. Pour warm mixture over cereal, and stir a few times to coat cereal.  Add goji berries, chia seeds, toasted and sunflower seeds in batches, and continue stirring until evenly mixed.
  5. Transfer cereal mixture into prepared 8x8 or 9x9 pan.  Spread evenly across surface of pan, then press mixture firmly until smooth and even.
  6. Place in refrigerator to chill, for 1-2 hours.  Slice into bars of desired size.  
  7. Wrap bars tightly or transfer to airtight container.  Stores best in the refrigerator.
