When I was younger, Nestle Crunch bars were my preferred brand of chocolate bar from the grocery store. I haven’t had a Crunch bar in a long time, mostly because I like cooking my own meals now.

Chocolate Quinoa Crunch Bars Ingredients
- 1 cup of overnight-soaked, rinsed, and pat-dry quinoa
- Choco chips, one cup
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- Using parchment paper, line a loaf pan. Place aside.
- In a skillet, heat to medium-high. You want to make it smolder!
- Empty the quinoa into the skillet and permit it to toast, mixing continually, for around 2-4 minutes. The quinoa will begin to pop, similar to popcorn, and begin to smell nutty. Continue to mix the quinoa until it starts to simply somewhat brown. Before it starts to burn, remove it from the heat.
- In a large bowl, combine the coconut oil and chocolate chips to melt. I prefer to melt it in the microwave in 15-second increments, stopping to stir between each one.
- Stir in the quinoa until it is evenly coated after the chocolate has completely melted.
- Spread an even layer of the chocolate-quinoa mixture into the loaf pan.
- For one hour, freeze. Cut into bars and spot in a Ziploc sack for long haul stockpiling.
