Wholesome Eats - 2

We LOVE these tasty Energy Bars! They are easy to make, high in protein, and freeze well. They are great for lunches, desserts, kids snacks, and are especially helpful for those that are always on the run, or skip meals. (tsk. tsk.) All of the nut/seed ingredients are easily found in the bulk section of Fred Meyer or your local health food store. Give them a try and let us know what you think!

1 c. sesame seeds
2 c. rolled oats
1 c. coconut
1/2 c. sunflower seeds (unsalted)
1/2 c. chopped cashews
1/2 c. slivered or chopped almonds
1/8 c. chia seeds (optional)
1/2 raisins, craisins, or dried cherries, blueberries or dates
1 c. peanut or almond butter
1 c. honey
2 tsp. vanilla

Mix together first 8 ingredients in large bowl. Combine peanut/almond butter, honey, and vanilla in separate bowl. Drizzle over nut/seed mixture until well coated. Press into 9x13 baking dish. Cover and bake at 350' for 15 minutes. Allow to cool, and cut into squares. ENJOY!

Thanks to Jaydene F. for sharing the recipe!
