Nut & Seed Choco Crunch Bars

Source: My Own Kitch

Serves

Ingredients

  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 12 cup raw sunflower seeds
  • 14 cup chia seeds
  • 12 cup raw pumpkin seeds
  • 2 cup rolled oats (be sure to purchase gluten-free if you have a sensitivity)
  • 12 cup coconut flakes (unsweetened)
  • 12 cup organic brown rice syrup
  • 14 tsp organic vanilla extract
  • 23 cup sunflower seed butter
  • 12 tsp pink Himalayan or Celtic sea salt
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • Chocolate Topping:
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 14 cup almond or coconut milk

Directions

To prep for making these bars, it's best to soak your nuts and seeds in a bowl of water for a few hours before making them. This will make more digestible by breaking down the enzyme inhibitors. Be sure to rinse them well after soaking and press dry.

First, grease bottom and sides of a med/lrg glass dish with coconut oil and set aside.

On a parchment-lined cookie sheet, spread out your seeds (except for chia), almonds, coconut and oats. Toast them in an oven preheated to 325°F for about 5-7 minutes.

Remove and transfer to your food processor. Add salt and pulse until just broken up. Transfer to a large glass bowl and add in chia seeds.

In a medium saucepan, pour in your brown rice syrup, vanilla extract and Sunflower Seed Butter and stir over high heat until mixture starts to boil. Once it has reached a boil, remove from heat and immediately pour into your bowl of dry goods and mix well.

Transfer mixture to your large dish and press down firmly with spatula to make it compact & even.

Now it's time to make your chocolate covering! Melt 1 cup of chocolate chips with 1/4 cup of almond or coconut milk on the stove and stir constantly until it all melts together. Pour over your bar mixture and pop in the fridge for at least 10 min before cutting up & serving

*Substitutions: you can swap raw honey for the brown rice syrup. Maple or agave will not provide enough stick factor.

you can swap natural peanut butter or almond butter for the sunflower seed butter. (be mindful of peanut allergies if making for school snacks)

you can swap out the type of seeds/nuts you use but keep the proportions the same.

Wow, that sounds like a great gift!

I've tried it all - pre-planned meal plans that others e-mail me the recipes for and the shopping list. These are great, but I don't always love all of the recipes and sometimes they just don't fit into my preferences (or my family's). I love to peruse online recipes along with the many recipe books and magazines. But, it just always seemed so much work to compile them and figure out what I needed on my grocery list - let alone having all kinds of books/mags lying around for one week's meals. Plan to Eat answers all of my dilemmas - it keeps track of my recipes, it lets me import them from websites with VERY minimal proofreading or changing. It lets me drag, drop, tag, click, print, filter...well, it lets me do everything I've ever dreamed of!

So. Many. Features!!! I can't begin to explain how great this service is. It does everything that every other service does, except now you don't need 10 different log-ins to accomplish all of those things. Plan To Eat does it all.

I just wanted to say thank you for making Plan to Eat so simple. I have tried other recipe planners before and just found them so clunky and time-consuming that it wasn't worth my while. Plan to Eat has taken all of that and turned it on its head. I love that you don't have to enter ingredients or instructions one at a time. Even if the recipe won't transfer (and they do 90% of the time) all I have to do is copy and paste everything at once. And don't even get me started on how unbelievably painless it is to add this stuff to my menu planner. Even my husband, who thought subscription-based meal planning software was frivolous, is a true believer. He upgraded our free trial to paid before it was over, and he didn't even tell me first because he was so sold on it. Now, in minutes I can do what used to take hours...which meant it never got done. Thank you a million times over!
