Carrot Muesli Bars for Kids

Our favorite afternoon snack is this  Carrot Muesli Bars recipe below.

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups Rolled Oats
1 cup assorted dried fruit (apples, raisins, dates are my favourite)
2/3 cup shredded coconut
1/4 cup crushed assorted nuts
1/3 cup maple syrup
1 organic carrot, shredded
3 Tbs. honey
2 Tbs. sunflower seeds, crushed
1 Tbs. ground flaxseed
1 Tbs. oil
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Place foil on baking sheet. In a large mixing bowl, add [dry ingredients] the oats, fruit, nuts, coconut, carrots, seeds, flax, cinnamon and salt. Toss well. Add the maple syrup, honey and oil to the mixture and mix well. Spread evenly on a baking sheet and relatively flat, about 1/2 inch high. Cook for 30 minutes or until top is slightly browned. Cut bars while they are hot but allow them to fully cool for 10-15 minutes before moving them around to prevent breakage. Makes about 12 bars. Enjoy!
