Prune, nut and seed slice

Puffed Quinoa, nuts and seeds mixed in with pureed prunes and almond butter then covered in a melted cinnamon dark chocolate, YUM!. They freeze really well and are perfect on a hot summer’s day or as an afterschool snack. If you want to make them school friendly – substitute the nuts for more sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds and the almond butter for sunflower butter or tahini.

Sweet Comfort

I always add a few drops (maybe 20 😊) of the Unwind & Breathe or Calm the Storm flower essence blends, for a little added sprinkle of calm, making them perfect for a mid-afternoon snack.  These prune, nut and seed bars are plant-powered goodness, making them both delicious and nourishing.
