Do you need something quick to grab on the go some mornings? I know I do! These bars are sweetened only with apples & raisins which make it a great healthy snack or breakfast on the go. With the morning rush of packing lunches and making sure my little one is ready to go it’s easy to loose track of time. I store all my bars, cookies & energy bites in the freezer so that I can always have a healthy option on hand to take with me or pack in school lunches.
- 1 Cup Sunflower Seeds
- 1 Cup Oats
- 1 1/2 Cups Raisins
- 1 Apple, Chopped
- 1-2 Tablespoons Ground Flax Seeds
- 2 Tablespoons Almond Butter
- 1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
- 1/4 Teaspoon Nutmeg
- Pinch of Salt
Pulse raisins, apple, cinnamon, nutmeg & almond butter a few times in a food processor. Add remaining ingredients and pulse until dough sticks together. Taste dough, if you like it sweeter, add more raisins or a touch of maple. Form dough into 2 inch balls and pat down flat on a piece of parchment paper. Bake for about 18 minutes in a 300 degree oven. Bars will brown slightly.
*For a non-baked version, just roll into balls then coat with your choice of topping, like coconut!
Take these bars on the go for breakfast, eat it as a quick snack or try crumbling it up and adding some milk.
