5 Minute Granola Bars

My kids have always loved having a muesli bar added to their lunch box, or as a snack on the weekend. But they had to go when we made the change to become a sugar free home, so I needed to find a school friendly (nut free) replacement. These have the perfect balance of sweetness from the raw honey and dried fruits while still providing all that nutritional goodness. It's so easy to make, and easy to adapt to whatever you have in your pantry. Best of all the kids love them!

Ingredients:

½ cup sunflower seed butter (or any nut butter / tahini)
¼ cup raw honey
¼ cup coconut oil – melted
1.5 cups rolled oats (gluten free alternative)
¼ cup linseed meal
¼ cup chia seeds
¼ cup dried cranberries or sultanas
¼ cup sunflower seeds
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch of salt

Method:

Prepare 8x8 dish with parchment paper.
Melt sunflower seed butter, honey and coconut oil on low heat until liquid form and set aside.
Combine all other ingredients together in a medium bowl.
Add wet mixture to dry mixture and mix until well combined.
Press mixture into pre-prepared dish.
Freeze for 30 minutes and then cut into 16 squares.
Keep in well sealed glass container in the fridge.
