These ingredients are what I normally have on hand, but feel free to substitute or add other nuts, seeds or dried fruit such as dried cranberries, cherries, shredded coconut, toasted oats, etc. These are packed with protein (and calories), and are great for athletes, or anyone who needs a hit of energy! The bars are soft and chewy, but the more ingredients you add, the firmer the bars will be.

Was able to make these bars with the ingredients listed, since a good friend of mine was able to point me in the direction to buy hemp seeds! We really enjoy the combo of seeds included here, & these bars add a nice new deminision to other bars like this that we keep on hand! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

- Place a sheet of parchment paper on top and press the mixture down into the pan, creating a smooth layer.
