Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9"x 9" baking sheet with parchment paper and grease the sides with cooking spray.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the oats, quinoa, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and hemp seeds.
In a separate bowl, mix the banana, chia eggs, nut butter and vanilla. Pour this mixture over the dry ingredients, mixing everything together until fully incorporated. The batter should be moist, but not runny. Fold in the strawberries
Transfer the batter into the prepared pan and smooth with a spatula.
Bake on the center rack for 30 - 35 minutes until the bars are golden brown and firm to the touch.
Remove and let cool completely in the pan, then remove and slice into squares (or rectangles). Store in an airtight container for 4 - 5 days.*
* if your bars are more moist than you would like, leave them uncovered on the counter overnight.
