Quinoa FENIX Protein Bars
- 1 scoop OGX Vanilla
- 1/2 cup dry quinoa
- 2 Tbsp ground flax seeds
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1/4 tsp pink Himalayan salt
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp cardamom
- 1/2 cup raw almonds; coarsely chopped
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1/2 cup almond butter
Preheat your oven to 350 F.
In a large mixing bowl, combine OGX FENIX™ Vanilla, quinoa, chia seeds, flax seed, rolled oats, cinnamon, salt, cardamom, and chopped raw almonds. Stir to combine.
In a small, microwave-safe dish, combine raw almond butter, maple syrup, and honey. Stir to mix, then microwave for 1 minute to soften.
Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients and stir with a plastic spatula to thoroughly combine. Wet ingredients may begin to firm up, in which case you will need to use clean hands to knead the mixture together.
Transfer your mixture to a parchment lined baking dish and pat down mixture with a plastic spatula to make a single, even layer.
Bake on the middle rack of the oven for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes. Cut 16 bars with a sharp, non-serrated knife or pizza cutter.

- 1 tablespoons olive oil
- Oregano, garlic powder, salt, pepper to taste.

Cut the bell pepper into slices and separate the cap from the rest of the mushroom.
Pour the balsamic vinegar in a shallow dish and add spices to taste. Soak in the mushroom cap and pepper slices for 10 minutes.
Grill the mushroom and pepper slices with olive oil, marinating it with the balsamic vinegar mixture. Top the mushroom with the cheese and let it melt. Remove the mushroom and peppers when tender and put it in the burger bun.
