  1. Can’t wait to try this! I don’t have fresh strawberries today, but I’m going to try it with frozen to see how it turns out!

  2. Thanks for the recipe – I love how simple and delicious it is, and how easy it is to make gluten free! I added hemp hearts, pepitas and sunflower seeds and it worked out great.

  3. My apologies, but this recipe is a little confusing. Are you baking the bars in a pan lined with parchment paper or a baking dish? Your pictures show a baking dish, but the instructions keep switching between the two and I’m not sure which one to try. Thank you!

    1. Sorry for the confusion! It is best to bake in a parchment lined baking dish. The parchment paper makes it easier to clean, it’s not required!

  4. I seen one of the comments that you said you can use honey instead of the nut butter. Could I substitute nut butter for maple syrup?

  5. Do these need to be refrigerated immediately or can they sit out for a few days? Mine tend to taste better without being refrigerated.
    Thanks!

  6. 5 stars
    Very good! My toddler was so happy to eat that special snack. However, the result is very wet, is it suppose to be crispy? Maybe because I put it in the frige? Thank you!! I’ll do it again for sure!
