Seedy Almond Butter Granola Bars




1 1/2 cups of rolled oats

1 cup of pitted dates

1/4 cup of pecans (halved if you can)

1/4 cup of almonds

2 tbsp hemp seeds

2 tbsp chia seeds

2 tbsp pepitas

2 tbsp sunflower seeds

1 tbsp linseed

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp fine sea salt

1/4 cup of honey or maple syrup

1/4 cup of smooth almond butter



1. Preheat oven to 175 degrees.

2. Spread oats evenly on a baking sheet and toast in the oven for 10 minutes. Shake the sheet halfway through. When they're nice and toasted, remove from the oven and set aside in a bowl.

3. Line an 8 x 8 baking pan with parchment paper or grease well.

4. Process dates in a food processor until a ball is formed. Transfer dates into the bowl with the oats, nuts, seeds, cinnamon and salt. Stir or mix with your hands well.

5. Bring honey or maple syrup with almond butter to a boil in a saucepan over medium heat. Pour over the dry ingredients. Stir and mix well.

6. Transfer to your pan and press down with a spatula so that the top is flat. 

7. Cover with plastic wrap and pop in the freezer for 15 minutes.

8. Remove from the freezer and cut up. Enjoy!
