I love the combination of flavors and the fact that they’re actually good for you. And they’re so easy to make that you can throw in a new batch on a weekly basis and have a healthy snack waiting for you in no time at all.

Ingredients

Yields 12–20 bars

  • ½ cup sunflower seeds
  • ½ cup nuts of your choice (I used walnuts)
  • ½ cup dried cranberries
  • 4 dried dates, pitted and chopped
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 2 Tbsp wheat germ
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 6 Tbsp peanut butter
  • ¼ cup honey


Preparation

Process the first four ingredients in a food processor with the S-blade for about 20 seconds. Add remaining ingredients and process until mixture comes together in small clumps. 

Transfer to an 8-inch (20-cm) square pan and press down firmly to form a thick square. Cut into bars or squares and chill or freeze until ready to use.
