  • 2 cups thick-cut rolled oats
  • 1 cup chopped almonds
  • ½ cup sunflower seeds
  • ½ cup dried cranberries
  • 1 cup raisins
  • ⅓ cup maple syrup
  • ¼ cup peanut butter
  • ¼ teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Spread oats, almonds and sunflower seeds on a rimmed cookie sheet and bake for 12 minutes or until lightly golden. Transfer to a mixing bowl and add cranberries to the oat mixture.
  3. Chop raisins in a food processor until they turn to a rough paste. 
  4. Warm raisin paste, maple syrup, peanut butter and salt in a small sauce pan or microwave until mixture easily blends together. Pour over oat mixture and mix well.
  5. Line a 13×9” pan with parchment paper; leave some parchment paper hanging over the sides to use as a handle. Spread mixture into the pan and push down with the back of a spoon. Place in the freezer for 20 minutes. 
  6. Lift paper out of the pan and place on a cutting board. Cut into approximately 40 small squares. Store in an airtight container for a few days or in the freezer for longer storage.
