INGREDIENTS

SERVES 15

  • 1 cup Pumpkin seeds

  • 6 tbsp Oatmeal-Rolled Oats
  • 2 tbsp Poppy Seed

DIRECTIONS

1 Pulse the dry ingredients (except oats and poppy seeds) quickly in a food processor or high-speed blender. Don?t overmix it - should still be chunky. Place the mixture in a bowl.
2 Blend all wet ingredients in a food processor until smooth. You may have to add a dash of water and stir the mixture a few times by hand.
3 Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients, add oats and poppy seeds and stir until well combined.
4 Spread the mixture evenly into an 11x7-inch baking dish and pack it down. Place in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
5 Cut into bars, wrap in paper and store in an airtight container. Will keep in refrigerator for one week.
