Recipe notes by Elizabeth Gibbs
These Oaty Bites are super easy to make and make a great healthy addition to the school lunch box. If you are worried that the cookies might be too grainy, simply throw some, or all, of the oats and sunflower seeds into a food processor and grind into a powder, then follow the recipe.
