Nut & Seed Choco Crunch Bars

Source: My Own Kitch



  • 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


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 have tried other plans before and they just didn't make my life easier. Plan to Eat, on the other hand really does make menu planning much easier! It is very intuitive. It is easy to transfer recipes. The way that the shopping list can be changed by dates is truly amazing. I'm able to easily change serving sizes. There is just so much to love!

This is the best meal plan I have seen. I always had trouble with creating meals for my family. Then I found out I was allergic to grains. Bless you for doing this for me and all the others out there. Now I can import the recipes I find online, and I will tell all my friends about you. Thank you so much.

I just used the Save Recipe (PTE) pinmarklet tool thingie on a blog recipe and I am blown away!!! I've never really used it before because I always just search for recipes in the P2E site because it was 'easier'. Thank you, thank you for such a neat tool! It slurped up the ingredients, the directions and even made it easy for me to add the picture! You guys have a fabulous service and it makes my life so much easier!

I just wanted to wish you a wonderful Christmas Holiday and to say thank you for all the hard work (and love) that went into Plan to Eat this year. It seems like every time I use the program it has some new and improved feature. I love the way it is getting better and better all the time. It has made menu planning and recipe management a breeze for me - I couldn't live without it now.

I love that I can easily move a recipe to any day, just drag and drop. I also love the shopping list layout and really find the recipe key helpful. With PTE I have to do a little more work to create a meal plan but I am left knowing I'm going to cook something that I actually want. Most other sites that I have found give you a meal plan but don't allow you to edit it all. And if my week gets crazy I can move that Chicken Marsala to next Tuesday in one simple move.
