Nutty Energy Bars

I love a good larabar. Sweet, chewy and filling. However, variety is the spice of life. Insert new bar that I love, Nutty Bars. Chewy, crunchy, nutty. Who wouldn’t love this combination?

Ingredients:

1 c Almonds

1 c Cashews

1/2 c Pepitas or Sunflower seeds or both

1/3 c Shredded coconut

1/2 c Raisins are cranberries

1/2 c Coarsely chopped dried apricots

1/8 c Flax Meal

Dash of Salt (I added more then a dash to create a sweet/salty mix.)

1/3 c Honey or Agave

 

Directions:

Pre-heat oven to 325. In a food processor coarsely chop almonds and cashew. Do not process until fine, you want the nuts chopped not turned into flour. In a large bowl, mix all dry ingredients together. Begin to add honey, slowly until all of the ingredients are coated and stick together.

Line a pan or cookie sheet with parchment paper. (Or else you will have a sticky mess.) Dump contents onto parchment paper, with large wooden spoon or by hand, press and flatten ‘dough’ down. Bake for 20-22 minutes and then remove from oven. Allow to cool. Once cooled, take knife or spatula and cut out bars. Wrap or just enjoy!
