Seed Bar Ingredients:
1 cup oats
1/3 cup sunflower seeds (an excellent source of vitamin E, which contains antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties)
1/3 cup pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup flax seeds (a great source of omega-3 fatty acids, which are heart healthy as well as a great fiber source)
2 cups puffed rice cereal
2/3 cups dark brown sugar
1/2 cup honey
4 tbsp. unsalted butter
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
I preheated the oven to 350 degrees. I lined a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread the cup of oats, 1/3 cup of sunflower seeds, 1/3 cup of pumpkin seeds, and 1/4 cup of flax seeds on the baking sheet and bake it for 8 minutes.
I removed the caramel sauce from the heat and then added the 2 tsp. vanilla.
I snacked on these for breakfast and used them as energy bars until they were gone. In fact, I made a second batch yesterday to have on hand for my tennis tournament this weekend.
