  • ¼ cup roasted unsalted sunflower seeds
  • ¼ cup wheat germ
  • 1 cup dried blueberries
  • ½ cup almond butter
  • ⅓ cup honey
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ½ tsp salt

Instructions

  • Line an 8-in baking pan with parchment and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, stir together oats, almonds, flax, sunflower seeds and wheat germ. Stir in blueberries.
  • Heat almond butter, honey, oil, vanilla and salt in a small saucepan over medium until combined. Stir in oat mixture until combined. Scrape into prepared pan, pressing down evenly to smooth the top.
