I’m a huge fan of recipes that are no-bake and better yet, don’t require appliances that need to be cleaned (I’m looking at you, food processor).

Thanks to the almond butter and slivered almonds, you’re getting fiber and protein to help keep you satisfied. The dried mango gives you some sweetness and a little bit of fiber.

If you’re wondering where to pick up puffed quinoa, you can find it at bulk stores such as Bulk Barn in Canada. In the U.S. I’ve seen it at health food stores and in the cereal section of the health food aisle at your grocery store.

If you can’t find puffed quinoa, no worries. Pick up some puffed brown rice and it will work just as well in this recipe.
