These energy bars are the perfect item to pack along for adventures as a family. They are filling, awesomely nutritious, and a sweet treat for everyone to enjoy. Your kids will be proud to share them and tell friends they made them.
1 - 280g (10 oz) bag of Original Weeds & Seeds or Wild Berry Weeds & Seeds
1/4 cup peanut butter (or other nut or seed butter of your choice)
1/4 cup honey (local, unpasteurized)
Pour the Weeds & Seeds into a mixing bowl.
Heat the peanut butter and honey till just melted. Don't overheat.
Pour the melted honey & nut/seed butter over the Weeds & Seeds. Mix well.
Pour into 9" x 11" cake pan for a thinner bar or into an 8" x 8" cake pan for a thicker bar.
Pat down firmly with the back side of a clean spoon.
Let cool, then slice into squares.
The squares can be frozen (if they last that long!)
Add your choice of nuts, coconut, chocolate chips, seeds, dried berries (or whatever your taste buds like!) or add oatmeal if your family prefers a less seedy bar.
Line the pan with parchment paper before spreading the warm mix to easily lift the chilled bars out for cutting. Young kids will not be able to manage the large knife needed to cleanly cut the bars but you can ask their opinion on whether you chop them into squares, rectangles or even fun triangles. Reuse the parchment to wrap cut bars before placing in an airtight tin or container and freeze so they don’t stick together.
