These are so easy to make… and what a fabulous replacement for their high sugar boxed enemies!
Thank you to Diane, who was a client of mine last January, for sending along this recipe!
1.5 c uncooked oats
1/2 c dried fruit (I used cranberries)
1/2 c chocolate chips or carob chips
1/2 c liquid sweetener (I mix 1/4 c apple sauce and 1/4 c maple syrup or agave. You can use all syrup or all agave too and they are extra yummy)
1/2 c peanut butter or any nut butter
1/4 c coconut oil (optional, but it helps them freeze and hold together well)
optional ingredients: it’s really whatever you have in the cupboard and want to add in- you can’t really mess it up
1 ripe mashed banana
1/2 c shredded coconut
flax seeds, chia seeds, hemp seeds (2 Tbsp)
1/4 c sunflower seeds
1.5 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
Stir it all up and press it into a pan. You can line it with wax paper to for easy clean up. Freeze, only takes an hour or so and then cut to desired size (pizza cutter works well).
