Alternately, you can press them into a square basking dish line with parchment paper and chill. cut them into squares after about half an hour and save in airtight boxes.
If you choose to make them just with one type of nuts or seeds that works well too. I do the recipe just with sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds for my children for school as nuts are an allergen.
