Kerri’s Notes:
These make an excellent lunchbox filler, perfect for easing the kids back into the swing of things!
Try with orange zest for a Jaffa Flavor
GLUTEN FREE OPTION: You can easily take the oats out to make these gluten free. You probably don’t need to replace them with anything, if the mixture seems a bit too wet, just add some more ground seeds or coconut.
