Nut Free No-Bake Slice
Nut-free no-bake slice! Also gluten, dairy and refined sugar free this little guy is perfect for school lunch boxes!
A few of you had asked for a healthy school snack that was nut free. This slice is full of good things, pepitas, coconut, hemp seeds and made with sunflower butter. Sunflower seed butter, made as you would nut butter, is a great alternative for baking and spreading. These bars are naturally sweetened with a hint of maple syrup and a few raisins, this slice is sooo yummy! Enjoy! x
