Granol-un Bars {Gluten Free}

We call these Granol-un Bars at our house, partly because our 3 year old son has trouble saying "granola" and it comes out granol-un but also because these aren't your typical granola bars. In this version of a granola bar, clusters of toasted quinoa, apricots, nuts, and sunflower seeds make a sweet and chewy snack. I'm not gonna sit here and say, "these are a cinch to make, easy peasy". Yes, the recipe is straight forward and you will all understand the directions (smart people) but it is a bit time consuming and involves several steps, during which you should not really leave the kitchen lest you burn your rolled oats {ahem}. Don't fear though, these are amazing and worth the time and like all things, we'll get better, faster and more efficient with practice. These make a great snack as they are filled with fiber and protein, all natural and most importantly delicious!
