These are the perfect treat for those who are following a GAPS, AIP, SCD protocol.  These are what I made for my daughter when she couldn’t tolerate eggs and had birthday parties to go to.  Sugar free, vegan, nut and egg-free these cater for most people suffering with food intolerances.

The cranberries give an incredible sour flavour to the bars and there is very little sweetner in these but I challenge you to eat only one (or is that just me!).

    Made these today and they are AMAZING! The orange oil makes all the difference – such a lovely taste. Great recipe, very easy to make and no cooking – bonus! I put gluten free oats in to pad it out a little, as didn’t have any pumpkin seeds.

    1. Thanks Julia, I made these again last week. I had forgotten how good they are but so glad you enjoyed them too! Good swap, I like youre thinking. 🙂
