  • 1/2 cup (125ml) of organic sorghum flour
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) of organic brown rice flour
  • 1/2 tsp. (2.5ml) of xanthan gum
  • 1/2 tsp. (2.5ml) of baking powder
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 cup (250ml) of organic oat flakes
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) of quinoa flakes
  • 2 cups of quinoa puffs
  • 1/2 cup of chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup of pumpkin seeds
  1. Preheat the oven to  375º.
  2. Combine the flax seeds and the water and set it aside for 10 minutes.
  3. Put together the flours, the xanthan gum, the baking powder, the salt, the oat flakes and the quinoa flakes.
  4. In another bowl, mix the flax seed mix, the sunflower oil, the sugar, the agave syrup, the vanilla and the sunflower butter.
  5. Add in gradually the flour mix to the liquid. Stir in the quinoa puffs, the chocolate chips and the pumpkin seeds.
  6. In a greased 8″x13″ oven dish, press in the dough and cook for 30-35 minutes or until golden.
  7. When you remove it from the oven, let it cool completely before you transfer it on a wire rack. If you don’t wait until it’s cold, the bars won’t hold.

What do our readers say about this recipe?

Oh my god!!! This recipe was just obtained from your blog. As soon as I saw it, I ran into the kitchen and began searching my cupboard for any and all of the items that I could possibly need. A delectable, wholesome, and simple delightful treat! Many, many thanks to you!!!

Last evening was the very first time that I had ever attempted to make these bars. These are scrumptious to eat! The addition of flax gives them a deliciously nutty flavor, and the sweetness level is just right.

I just wanted to comment and tell you how much I like reading your site. I am just getting started with the Paleo Diet, and I already know that you are going to be one of my favorites. I was at Whole Foods the other day and came on your recipe for the paleo bread. I prepared the bread this morning. It has a wonderful flavor! My husband hasn’t had any bread since he became paleo, so he asked me if there is any possibility that you could post this recipe so that he can make it himself. He also asked if I could make him some almond flour bread since he hasn’t had any since becoming paleo. Due to renal disease, he is required to eat meals that do not include grains; nevertheless, he has never tried grain-free bread, so he is doubtful about it.

I attempted to convert them into muffins using the instructions. That didnt function properly. After seeing that the batter was quite thin, I decided to add extra flour, which ultimately resulted in a chaotic situation. Even after using my tiny blender to crush up the flax seeds, I was unable to get the ingredients to mix together properly.
