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.

Eat healthier food. Save time & Money. Know what‘s for dinner.

Wow, that sounds like a great gift!

I've been on since January and I've already saved over $200 because of your incredible software. I'm tripping out! I LOVE to meal plan now. I dreaded (understatement) meal planning before. There was nothing worse than busting out 5 cookbooks and sitting there trying to make lists.

I work a very demanding job, usually 50-60 hours a week (plus commute) and I've been very overwhelmed to try to add cooking healthy meals to my already overloaded schedule. Your website has given me so much more confidence that I can meal plan, shop, prep and cook AND still have some free time (for house cleaning, ha)... Thank you again for helping me have more time and better health.

I have saved so much on my grocery bill by using this site. I just pull up my shopping list on my smart phone and stick to my list. It also saves me time. I used to meal plan and plan out my shopping list on paper, writing and erasing and re-arranging. Now Im done in 20 mins tops. I could go on and on but this site is fantastic.

I recently started eating a more plant-based diet, and so I'm accumulating lots of new recipes. I love that I have access to my recipes when I visit my family members in other states and I want to make dinner there or give them some good recipes. I also often plan some meals while I'm at work and then I have my shopping list ready when I leave. I love having my shopping list on my phone. I'm just having a great time with it. So thank you very much for starting this!
