I got this Oatmeal Snack Bar recipe from Kath Eats Real Food. While these oatmeal bars are delicious, the only sweetness in them comes from dried fruit. Add in 1/4 cup of agave if you prefer really sweet oatmeal bars. I used a mixture of dates and dried cranberries for the dried fruit and almond slices instead of walnuts. For the seeds, I used a mixture of sunflower and flax seeds, omitting the additional flaxseed this recipe calls for. I also soaked the oats in almond milk for about 40 minutes, breaking down the enzyme inhibitors and making the oats more absorbable.

The bars turned out really delicious. I especially liked two things: my kid helped me make them (easy to make)  and I wasn’t afraid to give them to my kids to eat, because the ingredients  were all natural. I also liked the high fiber, high protein and high Omega 3 fatty acid content of this snack.
