Crunchy Oat Bars

What a time to be alive. We can actually ingest crunchy, filling and sweet treats, without even the hint of an animal product or a highly refined sugar. And who doesn't love a muesli bar?! This recipe is so quick to prepare you could *almost* make it before leaving for work, and it's packed with enough nourishing ingredients, it'll leave you with that glow you only get after seeing a puppy learn to walk down stairs. As usual, substitute the nuts, seeds and dried fruits as desired.
