Cooking spray
2 cups mini marshmallows
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 teaspoon light agave syrup
4 cups puffed-rice cereal
1/4 cup dried apricots, diced (about 2 ounces)
2 tablespoons flaxseeds, ground
2 tablespoons roasted unsalted hulled sunflower seeds

Spray a large metal mixing bowl with cooking spray and set aside.

Cook the marshmallows, butter, agave and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the marshmallows are completely melted and the mixture is blended, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat, add the puffed rice and stir to coat with the marshmallow-butter mixture.

Transfer the rice mixture to the prepared bowl and sprinkle with the apricots, flaxseeds and sunflower seeds. Stir with a wooden spoon or hands lightly coated with cooking spray. Form into 8 logs or balls (about 1/2 cup each). Let cool about 30 minutes, then wrap tightly in parchment or plastic wrap.
