  • Store in the fridge for up to 1-2 weeks or in the freezer for up to 3 months.


  • Raisins: Feel free to skip these or use a different dried fruit if your kiddo isn't a fan of raisins. I bet dried cherries, cranberries or dates would be delicious!
  • Chocolate chips: If you want to skip the chocolate, you can use more dried fruit. 
  • Sunflower seed butter: You could use tahini in place of the sunflower seed butter. If you don't need these to be nut-free, any nut butter would work as well.
  • Maple syrup: Feel free to skip this if you prefer or swap in your favorite liquid sweetener like honey or agave.
