School Snacks

This year my daughter started Kindergarten and I am committed to making healthy, waste free lunches and snacks.  She loves granola bars but I wanted to make a version with a little bit more nutrition but just as tasty.  This version is also gluten free and nut free. Although I used rice crisps (that’s what I had on hand) oats would be great.

Ingredients

DRY

1 c toasted millet

2 c rice crisps

1/2 c coconut flakes

3/4 pumpkin seeds

1/2 c raisins

1/4 c chocolate chips

1/4 c hemp hearts

2 tbsp chia seeds

 

WET

1/3 – 1/2 c honey

1/2 – 3/4 c sunbutter (sunflower seed butter) unsweetened

2 tbsp coconut oil

1 tsp vanilla

Directions:

Mix dry ingredients in a bowl, except chocolate chips.  Heat coconut oil in a saucepan over low medium heat, add in honey, vanilla and Sun butter stir until well mixed and smooth. I start with the lower amounts of honey and Sunbutter until I get a sweetness and thickness I like.  The mixture should pour easily.  Pour liquid over dry ingredients and mix well, until everything is coated add in chocolate chips and then pour into greased baking pan.  Press down firmly with spatula or rolling pin. Refrigerate until hard then cut into squares
