In a large bowl, combine the puffed rice, rolled oats, sunflower and sesame seeds, dried fruit, and rice flour and mix well.

Step 4

In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the peanut butter, maple syrup, and honey and heat gently for 2 minutes or until it becomes runny. Add the liquid mixture to the dry ingredients and mix until coated.

Using a piece of wax paper to protect your fingers, press the mixture firmly into the prepared pan and spread it evenly. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
