Oat 'n' Nut Balls/Bars (No Bake)

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Roosie

This is a great after-school snack or healthy treat for kids of all ages. The barley malt syrup gives it a very unique flavor, plus you can use any kind of nut or nut butter that you and your family like! Super-easy to make, so your kids can help too. These are best after they have sat for a couple of hours to let the oats soften up a bit. Enjoy!

I am embarrassed that I have not commented. I have been using this recipe for years. The only slight change I made was instead of barley malt, (it is not available here in Israel) I use a combination of date syrup and honey/agave. That at combination is much sweeter so I cut down the amount of sweetener.
