Lickity Split Granola Bars

These take five minutes to make.
They contain five ingredients.
Five year olds will love them.

And... so will you.

I love granola/energy bars.  They are great for breakfast or as a snack or are perfect for those times when your blood sugar is going to crash and you are ready to kill someone.

I adapted this recipe from this site
They are highly versatile.. you can use different nuts and seeds, dried fruits, nut butters and sweetners, depending what you like and what's chilling in your cupboards.

Get crazy with it.

Lickity Split Granola Bars (makes 9-12 bars)

2 1/2 c. rolled oats
1 c. sunflower seeds
1/2 c. raw cacao nibs
2/3 c. sunflower seed butter or any nut butter
1/2-2/3 c. honey or agave

Line a 9" by 9" pan with aluminum foil.
In a large bowl mix together the oats, raw cacao and sunflower seeds.
In a seperate bowl mix together the honey and sunflower seed butter.
Pour the honey/sunflower seed mixture into the oat mixture and mix until all ingredients are incorporated.
Press mixture into the lined pan. Place another piece of foil on top and press down even more. 
Refrigerate for at least for hours.
Cut into squares and keep stored in the fridge until ready to eat.
