Pretty much every program my children have attended up to grade eight has been nut free. It makes it very hard to find high protein low sugar snacks to send with them. I developed this recipe when my girls were 10 and 7. It's fast, healthy and gives them great energy.

Step 1: Gather Your Materials

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Gather your ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup raisins (or any other dried fruit)
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds (or any other seed)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 egg

Step 2: Mix Everything Together

Mix all the ingredients so the wet cover all of the dry ingredients.

Step 3: The Most Important Step: SMUSH!

Liberally spray a muffin tin with oil (as I obviously have done).

Spoon the mixture into each of the 12 spots.

Take an 8 ounce juice glass and press the mixture down, forming a puck. When the puck is formed press and turn, making sure the puck turns in the tin.

Step 4: Bake, Cool, and Enjoy!

Bake for 12 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool for 5 minutes. Run a butter knife around the edge of each cookie and lift them out carefully. Enjoy!
