  • Author: Lexi
  • Yield: 8 1x

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1/2 cup seeds of choice (I used 1/4 cup sunflower seeds and 1/4 cup pepitas)
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts (I did a mix of chopped walnuts, pecans, and almonds)
  • 1/2 cup gluten-free oats
  • 1 teaspoon chia seeds
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened coconut flakes
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon or apple/pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 cup cranberries
  • 1/4 cup dried pineapple (cut into smaller chunks if large)
  • 2 tablespoons chocolate chunks
  • 1/3 cup raw honey (reduce by 2 teaspoons if you don’t like much sweetness)
  • 1/4 cup nut butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Toast seeds/nuts on a sheet pan a 350°F for 5 minutes (optional).
  • In a large bowl combine the seeds, nuts, oats, chia seeds, coconut, sea salt, dried fruit, and chocolate.
  • In a sauce pan over medium heat, heat honey, nut butter, and vanilla for 1 minute. Pour over the nut mixture and mix to combine.
  • Pour into a loaf pan or a small sheet pan lined with parchment paper and flatten with a greased spatula.
  • Refrigerate or freeze until hard enough to cut. Store in refrigerator.

Notes

For paleo, omit oats.

For vegan, sub honey for maple syrup.

  3. Hi: I’ve not been able to download the nutritional info? Any chance you could put here?

    Thank you

  4. I stumbled across this on Facebook, and it looked so good. My wife made them last night and they ARE so good!

    The only downside is that they are so tasty I have to be careful not to eat the whole batch right away! That would defeat the purpose of such a healthy snack.

    As we say in our house, “This is a do again!”

  5. I made the bars and used almond butter. They cut beautifully and I wrapped in wax paper. They are delicious.

  6. These taste so good ! I have a peanut allergy, so I used almond butter instead of peanut Butter. I replaced the honey with rice malt syrup and coco nibs instead of chocolate. Delicious!
