nutty, seedy goodness

8 Nov


I was recently turned onto these bars by a friend and I am forever grateful. I have been looking some sort of granola bar I could make at home that would be firm enough to hold up on it’s own, but not hard and didn’t require too much sweetener. These use a ton of of nuts and seeds, which we usually have an abundance of, so this recipe is a cinch to throw together. These bars, using agave, win on all accounts. They are nutty, chewy, and crunchy and make a great high protein snack that can easily subdue any candy/baked good craving you might be having. I’ve been making double batches of this recipe and Jim and I gobble them up throughout the week.


Oat/nut/seed mixture after toasting. We aren’t coconut fans, so I left it out and used some slivered almonds instead. I also add a little dusting of cinnamon.


Pressed down into the pan after combining with PB/agave mixture. These are so good- make them now!

    I’ve been meaning to try my hand at homemade bars. I always eat a bar before I hit the gym after work. And I spend a fortune on Larabars, Luna Bars, Clif Bars, and such.

    Interesting recipe, different from the one I usually use (especially with regards to baking/not baking after mixing all the ingredients together). I’ve got to give it a try!
