AMAZING HOMEMADE GRANOLA BARS!!!!
1/2 cup ground flax seeds
1/2 cup ground hemp seeds
1/2 cup chia seeds
2 cups oats (I used old fashioned-make sure gf is making gluten free version)
1/2 cup chopped dried strawberries
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup sliced almonds
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup almond butter or peanut butter
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
1/4 cup raw honey
1 tablespoon orange zest
Preheat oven to 350 F
Melt ALMOND OR PEANUT butter and maple syrup & honey. Stir into the dry ingredients to combine.
Pour into a non-stick foil lined 9x13 cookie sheet pan with sides. Use a rolling pin to spread the mixture into a even layer. Grind sea salt over the top. Bake for 25 minutes. Leave to cool completely before cutting.
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

NEXT TIME, I WILL OMIT THE ORANGE ZEST-WAS VERY STRONG, I THOUGHT.
