Can you help me devise/do you already have a recipe for healthy YUMMY quinoa energy bars where most of the fat/calories/etc are the contribution of the quinoa?

After tasting a commercial quinoa bar I want to try and make my own quinoa bars where quinoa is the star.
My parameters for the recipe are:
-lasts a week or so I want to make a big pan for the week.
-durable [won't crumble to dust in a backpack full of HEAVY books.]
-the additions/binders add minimal fat and calories
I'd prefer to avoid
-other quinoa recipes.
-advice on other protein sources you think I should try.
(quinoa is a very odd sounding word when repeated enough times)
These are mostly for snacks-a protein punch that is easy to carry around and eat quickly and doesn't need to meet my general nutrition needs re:other vitamins/minerals foodgroups--I work full time and go to law school in the evening.
