Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

  • 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.

  1. Do these store well in the fridge, freezer, or pantry? I would like to make them but in not sure I will finish them all in a week.

  2. Any idea how many calories per bar if cut into 6? Also mine were very crumbly. I did toast the nuts. Any idea what i could do differently? More honey?

  3. I made this today and they were in fridge 4 hours before I cut them. They are very delicious (I used dates) but very crumbly.

  4. Do you think I could use Nutella instead of a nut butter, guess its worth a try. To the person wanting the calorie count, I think you could google all of the ingredients for calories, adding them all up and dividing by the number of bars you divide the pan into. This will only give you ballpark numbers because there is great variation allowed with the measurements, if you had grams to work with you could zero in on a more precise calorie count because u could use a scale to weigh out each ingredient. These look so wonderful, can’t wait to try them. I love the presentation with the wrappers, too!

  5. Just put mine in the freezer to set up. The dry ingredients alone were so yummy. I’m vegan so I used maple syrup. Can’t wait to try them once they set up. I’m literally so excited for these. Toasting the nuts and seeds definitely gives it a nice flavor. Highly recommend toasting them. I will double the batch next time so I can send some off to my son who lives out of state.

  8. 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!

  9. 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!”
