  • 1 cup chopped or shredded broccoli stalks from one head of broccoli, I usually slightly peel them too, but don't include the crowns
  • 2 bananas
  • 1 cup chopped carrots I usually shred on my food processor
  • 2 medium unpeeled apples cored and diced
  • 1/3 cup filtered water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup ground golden flax seeds
  • 1 large sweet potato, peeled and cooked leftover roasted works, or steam, boil, etc.
  • 1 cup honey
  • 2 TBSP cinnamon I know it seems like a lot but trust me.
  • 1-1 1/2 cup sunflower seed butter or whichever you prefer
  • 3 cups old fashioned oats
  • 2 cups sprouted spelt flour or whatever flour you prefer
  • 1/2 cup walnuts optional
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened grated coconut optional


  • Blend together and mix well the bananas, water, cinnamon, 1 tsp salt, 3/4 cup of the honey and all but 2 TBSP of the golden flax, ground
  • Blend in the cooked sweet potato
  • Add the broccoli and carrots and mix about another minute
  • Add the oats and spelt flour mixing well
  • Add apples and mix well again
  • Pat and form into a 13×9 pan (good job for kids)
  • Bake 50 min to an hour at 350 degrees
  • For the “icing” mix the nut butter, 1/4 cup honey leftover, and reserved 2 TBSP ground flaxseeds
  • Spread on top of cooled bar mixture. (it actually works best if they are still a little warm as it “melts” the nut butter making it easier to spread)
  • Sprinkle with coconut and walnuts (Optional)



I cut these into about 2 inch squares or smaller depending on how thick they are. I often wrap them individually in so that they stay moist and they are typically better the day after you made them. They work well in the freezer as well, just pull them out and pop them in your lunchbox.
