  1. Yumbo, I love sunflower seeds (and anything with medjool dates is a winner in my books!). Will be passing this recipe on to my sister, as her son has just started out at a no-nut school! Thanks so much! xx
    1. Hi. I ve seen all your cookie/ bars recipes comprise steel rolled oats. Can you please tell me whether the oats need to be pre cooked in water first ? I intend to give these to my 1.5 year old daughter . Thanks!
  2. Yummy! Can regular dates be replaced for medjool dates? What's the difference between the two? The grocery stores by me only sell regular dates so that's why I'm wondering. Thanks! :)
  3. Thank you for this!!! Our oven broke the other day (when baking cupcakes for my son's 5th b-day!) and I need to make some healthy snacks for school. These look perfect!!!! Janine
    1. So glad you liked them! I don't have the info, but I think you can plug the recipe into My Fitness Pal for a rough estimate
  4. Is there anything I can replace the dates with that won't turn off my very fussy 6 year old? I know she will refuse to even try these if there are dates and I'm trying to get her cooking with me. Could i use honey or maple syrup? I hate making food in secret lol
    1. I am not sure if honey or maple syrup alone will work, but you can try. The dates also help bind the cookies. How about using apricots?
