Seeds and grains play an important role in the new Nordic cooking ideology and the range that can be found in the supermarkets of Nordic countries is very impressive. Puffing grains is tricky to do at home, so here you need to buy the quinoa prepared. Other puffed grains such as amaranth and millet can be used in place of the quinoa – just be sure to measure out the same volume as opposed to weight. These are a perfect fika snack for packing on the go.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
160g rolled oats
175g pepitas
100ml grape syrup
3 tablespoons honey
1 1/2 tablespoons matcha green tea powder
3 tablespoons coconut oil
1 teaspoon natural vanilla extract
40g unsweetened puffed quinoa grains
155g fresh blueberries

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 160°C. Line a 20 cm x 15 cm baking tin with baking paper.
  2. Arrange the oats and pepitas on a baking tray in an even layer and bake for 10–15 minutes, or until the oats are golden and have a nutty aroma and the pepitas are toasted. Set aside to cool completely.
  3. In a small saucepan over a low heat, stir together the grape syrup, honey, matcha powder, coconut oil and vanilla extract until the coconut oil has melted and the ingredients are well combined.
  4. Pour the syrup mixture into a large bowl. Add the cooled oats, puffed quinoa grains and pepitas to the bowl and quickly stir together to coat them in the liquid, then gently stir through the blueberries. Pour the mixture into the lined tin, pressing firmly into the corners, and transfer to the refrigerator for 1–2 hours to chill and firm up.
  5. To serve, lift the chilled mixture from the baking tin and cut into six squares, then cut the squares diagonally into 12 triangles. These sails will keep well in the refrigerator in a sealed container for up to 2 weeks.
