Seedy Granola Bars with Chocolate Drizzle

 We are absolutely loving these easy-to-make seedy granola bars with a delicious dark chocolate drizzle. They're crunchy, chewy, sweet but not too sweet, high in protein and fibre, and loaded with mono unsaturated omega 3's. Omega 3 fatty acids not only support brain health and development, but also help to reduce inflammation in the body too! With the addition of our Golden Hour superfood tonic, these bars are the perfect snack to take to work, school or hike. If needed, this recipe can be modified to be nut free for your little ones to take to school! If you make them nut free, use sunflower butter as an alternative to nut butter. Serves: 10-12Total time: 45 minutes Ingredients: 1/2 cup rolled oats...
