have not tired of them. My favorite combination that I've stuck with is dried cherries and chocolate chips instead of raisins.

I appreciate that these are fast to make. It does a number on the shoulder mixing so now I use my stand mixer. I don't mix the liquids separately, I just put all in the mixer and it works well that way.

This recipe comes from Food 52

This bar can be whatever you want it to be. Add different kinds of dried fruits, different nuts, or different nut butters. It's all good. Mix, wrap, and enjoy! - Gena Hamshaw
Serves 10-12

o 2 1/2 cups rolled or quick oats
o 1 cup raw pumpkin seeds (pepitas)
o 1/2cup raisins
o 2/3 cups peanut or almond butter, or other nut butter
o 1/2 to 2/3cup agave nectar or brown rice syrup (adjust based on how well things stick together) (me-coconut nectar)
o 1/8teaspoon sea salt (adjust based on which nut butter you use)
1. Mix oats, pumpkin seeds, and raisins in a large bowl.

2. Whisk together nut butter, sweetener, and sea salt. Pour into oat mixture, and mix well, till everything is sticky and combined. If it's too dry, add a bit more agave.

3. Press mixture into a shallow baking dish that you've lined with foil or saran wrap. Cover with more foil/saran, press well into the baking dish, and refrigerate for 4 hours. Cut into bar shapes, wrap, and keep refrigerated till ready to use. They will last two weeks in the fridge.

Additional possibilities:
Honey, maple syrup, coconut nectar
Sunflower seeds
Hemp protein
Dried cherries, apricots ,mango bits
Chocolate, white or butterscotch chips
Any nut
Cinnamon
