Awesome Vegan Trail Mix

4 tablespoons vegan butter
3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
1 1/3 cups quick-cook oaats
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
3/4 cup cheerios (I personally used Rice Chex since I can't eat Cheerios)
1/4 cup raisins
2 tablespoons salted peanuts OR pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup vegan chocolate chips (Enjoy Life Brand is our brand of choice)
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 tspn salt

Preheat oven to 325degrees. Line an 8" square pan with parchment and grease lightly.

Melt butter and maple syrup together in a small pan. Set aside to cool.

Add all remaining ingredients to a large bowl and stir together. Once the butter and syrup mixture have cooled, pour over dry mixture and combine well. Transfer mixture to prepared pan and press down firmly. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until center is just firm to touch.

Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 15 minutes, then cut into 8 bars, using a very sharp knife. Allow to cool completely before lifting from the pan. Store in airtight container.
