With summer winding down, it's the time to think about school snacks. This allergy-friendly recipe makes a great snack that you can make with kids.
- look for gluten-free oats if gluten or wheat allergy is a concern
- you can sneak in some chocolate chips!
In a medium bowl, stir together oats, dried fruit, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, hemp hearts, ginger, cinnamon and salt. Add seed butter, molasses and maple syrup. Mix until well-combined. (You might need to get your hands in there.)
Line a 9" x 9" square pan with parchment paper, ensuring that it hangs over the edges so you can lift the bars out later. Press the mixture into the pan, spreading it out evenly with your hands.
Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, then lift bars out of the pan and cut into individual bars/squares. You'll need to work fast to make sure everything holds together. Wrap the bars individually and store in the fridge in an airtight container.
