Make sure to use real maple syrup, you will pay a little more for it, but it’s worth it!
You can substitute other kinds of seeds for the chia seeds and sesame seeds, but make sure they are small, so that your bars will hold together well.
You can also try other kinds of nut butters. We use almond butter because no one in our house is allergic to it.
