I'm not talking kitkats or marsbars here, I'm talking about homemade organic vegan bars that are just bursting with healthy goodness.
Want to see?
I'm growing my kiddos on vegan goodness like this
...and on organic sugar free lollipops of course!
Everyone knows that there is nothing better that a lollipop!
Just look at that cheeky grin.
Anyway, you one can't live just on lollipops (sadly) so back to the snack bars....
Here is what you need to make these lovely snacks yourself :
40g rolled oats
40g sunflower seeds
40g pumpkin seeds
Handful of sesame seeds
3-4 tbsp something sticky (golden syrup, date syrup, honey etc.)
What to do:
Start by heating up a non-stick pan and dry frying the seeds over a medium heat. Add the oats and fry for 3 mins. Add the sunflower and pumpkin seeds and fry for 2 minutes.
Take care – the pumpkin seeds may pop a little!
Take the pan off the heat. Stir in your choice of stickyness – it will sizzle at first but keep stirring until the oats and seeds are coated. Allow to cool slightly.
Line a 20cm x 10cm baking tin with greaseproof paper.
Spread the mixture evenly on the paper and line another one on top of the mixture.
Use a presser (or chopping board) to apply pressure to the mixture.
Chill for at least 1 hour, or until solid. Turn it out of the tin and peel off the greaseproof paper. If you have problems peeling off the paper, leave it at room temperature for 1 min and try again. Cut into bars.
Keep it in an air-tight container and store in the fridge. Best to be consumed within a week (or hour if necessary!)
