These tasty treats don't stop there, as there is a nut free option that competes with, if not better than, its counterparts.
1cupseedssunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, or mixture of both
Two big pinches salt
Combine seeds with olive oil and salt and mix together thoroughly. Toast coated seeds in toaster oven, a pan on the stove (on low heat), or standard oven on 350 degrees F until slightly brown.
Combine toasted seeds, dates and water in a food processor and puree until mixture starts to stick together.
Remove date mixture and squeeze together into one big clump with your hands. Mash it down on a cutting board or sheet of wax paper to form into one even rectangle shape using the sides of your hands (or a knife) to make the edges straight.
Slice into 8 even squares. For best results store in the fridge, although bars can be kept at room temperature.
