*I used homemade granola that had lots of nuts and seeds in it. I linked some recipes above if you want to make your own.
**I used Hemp Heart Toppers that are a "maple cinnamon" flavour. If you don't have this product, simply use hemp hearts and add 1 tsp of cinnamon and 1 tsp of maple syrup.
I used brown rice syrup for two reasons, it's low in the glycemic index and because it's very sticky it is great for holding these together. You could also use maple syrup but I don't think it will stick as well. Honey is another option, I just never bake with honey because heat destroys all the beneficial enzymes, but if you don't care about that then honey will do too!
