Super seedy muesli bars

If you find yourself reaching for unhealthy snacks, why not try making some of these muesli bars for a healthier option? Nuts and seeds are a great source of plant based protein. Almond, pumpkin seeds, peanut butter and oats are all good sources of magnesium. Magnesium is known for relieving muscle aches and spasms.

Hemp seeds are unique because they contain all essential amino acids (building blocks of protein), something that is uncommon in a plant protein source, making them a great addition to a vegetarian diet.

½ c. sliced almonds (or pumpkin seeds)

¼ c. sesame seeds

3 Tbsp chia seeds
