These vegan, no-bake bars are gluten free & dairy free. They’ll last in your fridge for up to a month, so they make the perfect snack to have on hand. You can add any other nuts & seeds you like! Full of protein, fibre and healthy fats, they’re the perfect fuel day and night.

This was the first time I added Crispy Rice Cereal to a granola bar recipe, but it adds a nice crunch to it! Nature’s Path makes an organic, non-gmo, and gluten free cereal made from brown rice flour that tastes even better than your traditional Rice Krispie’s.
