- 2 cups rolled oats (see note)
- 2 cups prepared trail mix from bulk bins, or nuts, seeds and dried fruit of your choice
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1/4 cup honey
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil
- 1 cup nut or seed butter
In a bowl, combine oats, trail mix and salt. Over medium heat, place maple syrup and honey and in a saucepan and bring to a low boil for 2 to 3 minutes. Add oil and nut or seed butter and heat until it is thoroughly mixed and is an even consistency.
Stir wet mixture into dry ingredients and combine until evenly mixed. Press into an oiled 6-cup rectangular or square baking dish. Let cool, then flip out onto a cutting board and cut into 18 bars.
Wrap in waxed paper or plastic wrap to keep the bars from drying out.
For a more robust flavor, place oats on a baking sheet and toast in the oven at 325° F for about 15 minutes, or until they are golden brown. Nuts and seeds can be toasted in the same way for 6 to 7 minutes.
