Whole grain, seeds, nuts, and dry fruit…does it get better? Yes! They’ve got nut butter! This recipe is flexible. You can sub sweeteners (except don’t use fake sweeteners); you can use whatever type of nuts or seeds you like. You can add candied ginger in place of dried fruit. Use raisins, currants, or dried chopped cherries – your choice. Makes 16 breakfast bars or 32 snack bars.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil, or as needed
  • 4 cups rolled oats
  • ¼ cup sliced almonds
  • ¼ cup chopped walnuts
