A Super Simple Snack

By Leigh Williams
Running out of snack ideas you can feel good about feeding to your family? Try out these no-bake granola bars! Plus, they contain no tree nuts, gluten or dairy – so even those with common food allergies can enjoy! 
Here’s what you’ll need:
¾ cup dates, pitted
1 ½ cup gluten free oats
Dash of sea salt
¼ cup sunflower seed butter
¼ cup raw maple syrup (or agave)
¼ cup Enjoy Life (or other allergy-friendly) chocolate chips
Here’s what you’ll do:
-       Line an 8x8 pan with parchment paper
-       In a food processor or blender, pulse dates until chopped. They will start to come together near the blade forming a “ball”
-       Add chopped dates to a large bowl with oats and sea salt.
-       Melt sunflower seed butter in the microwave by heating for a few seconds until warm. Add sunflower seed butter and syrup (or agave) to the bowl. 
-       Mix ingredients together well.
-       Sprinkle in chocolate chips.
-       Add mixture to pan.
-       Press mixture down with a spatula to create a flat, even surface.
-       Place in fridge or freezer to allow bars to firm up before cutting.
-       Cut and store in a Ziploc bag or air-tight container.
Super simple! These are delicious and my kiddos always ask for more once the batch is gone! Plus, you’ll feel good about what you’re giving them. Win-win!
