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.

Wow, that sounds like a great gift!

I love this program! I can import recipes for websites with a click. Drag and drop recipes into a calendar which I print out and stick on the fridge. Print out the customized shopping list for the week. But the BEST part is being able to access all of it from my phone! I can look at the recipes and my shopping list on my phone in the grocery store!

You really have thought of everything in this program! It's more than I was looking for. By far the BEST product for menu-planning I've ever come across. All others fall way way WAY too short to be helpful. You've hit the nail on the head. THANK YOU!!!!

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!

I recently started to plan my meals on Plan to Eat, and I am soooo excited about the money I didn't spend this month! I saved a considerable amount just planning from what I already have, plus I don't have to dash to the store for one item and leave $35 later with 9 items because I know exactly what I have and what I need. This is brilliant! And it's downright fun, in my opinion!! Thanks for all your work to make it great.

Love it so far...especially the automatic grocery list. No more little pieces of paper that I never remember to bring into the store! My kids are eating more nutritious meals because of you (me too)! Thanks.
