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!

(Plan to Eat) saved me at least an hour of planning meals, making the shopping list and inputting it into the previous app I was using. I love that I can plan my meals for the week then it pulls the shopping list for me. I really like that I can go to the staples list and add what I need from there to my shopping list. I also like that I can add my own specific needs to the staples list or my shopping list for the week.

Plan to Eat is a fantastic way to plan meals, store recipes, and create grocery lists - all of which help save my family time and money. (And help me save my patience & sanity!)

We're on a journey in trying to discover the sources of our son's chronic skin eczema, and at this point have found out about 20 or so foods he is sensitive to. Making such drastic dietary changes has been a difficult journey for me, a mom who hasn't ever enjoyed preparing food much anyway. This site has blessed my socks off in trying to organize my thoughts and plan healthy meals for our family with little ones to take care of during the day, and not much time to sit and be thoughtful about all this. What a miracle to click on a tab and have a recipe quickly downloaded to the site, and click another tab and have my grocery list made already! Wow!

I love it. I have done a couple of different meal planning subscription services, but this is so much better. I have to do a little more work, but get to customize what we eat and not just follow the recipes given to me (that my family didn't enjoy). Thanks for simplifying meal planning.
