Energy Bars with Dark Chocolate, Quinoa and Coconut

You know those weeks that never end? This is one of those for me. Finally the sun came out, which is immediately an injection of energy and good mood.
Last Sunday I went to Serralves, (my first time) I thought it was beautiful, but the weather was not so great, so the photos left me disappointed.
I think this weekend will be perfect for strolling around, with the camera in hand! How I missed that … walking around, visiting new spots, shoot in good weather. Going out without plans or roadmaps, with the curiosity of a child and an energy bar on my wallet. These are the favorites here at home: not too sweet, very crunchy and full of surprises…

Enjoy the good days ahead!

2 3

250 Rolled Oats
100g of grated coconut
50g quinoa
3 tbsp Sunflower seed
2 tbsp Sesame seed
1 can sweetened condensed milk
100g of chopped Dark Chocolate (I used 70% cocoa)
Butter for greasing

Turn the oven to 130 º C.
In a saucepan heat the condensed milk until it begins to boil.
In a bowl combine the oats, coconut, quinoa, seeds and the chopped chocolate.
Pour the condensed milk in the dry ingredients and mix with the help of a spoon until you get an uniform mixture.
Grease a mold (I used 20x40cm) with butter and pour the preparation.
Sleek and tamp slightly to make it a compact bar.
Bake for 60 minutes.
Remove from the oven, let it cool for 2 minutes and unmold.
Cut into pieces and let them cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
