These nut-free treats are chewy and packed with flavour, thanks to the tasty fruit and toasted quinoa, which also add fibre and protein to stave off hunger. Pack one in her knapsack for snack emergencies!
In skillet, toast quinoa over medium- high heat, shaking pan often, until brown and beginning to pop, about 8 minutes.
Meanwhile, in saucepan, combine corn syrup, tahini, honey and oil; heat over medium heat, shaking pan often, until melted and smooth, about 6 minutes.
In large bowl, combine cherries, oats, quinoa flakes, coconut flakes, pepitas and toasted quinoa; stir in syrup mixture to coat evenly. Scrape into parchment paper–lined 13- x 9-inch (3.5 L) cake pan, pressing firmly with bottom of greased measuring cup or greased spatula.
Bake in 325°F (160°C) oven until golden brown, about 20 minutes. Sprinkle with chocolate chips; let cool completely on rack. Refrigerate until chocolate chips are set, about 30 minutes. Cut into bars. (Make ahead: Store in airtight container for up to 1 week.)

Packed with hearty lentils, these tasty tacos are super satisfying. We've used dried green lentils rather than canned because they contain far less sodium and have a better texture.

Weeknight entertaining is a breeze when you put your slow cooker to work! Adding a bit of flour to the sauce at the end of cooking turns it into a rich gravy to serve alongside the roast. Green peas and mashed sweet potatoes make great accompaniments to this hearty cold-weather dish.
