OMG you guys I made these nut and seed bars and they are soo good!! They are the perfect snack, well-rounded snack. These are a great pre-workout snack to give you the energy you need. Honestly, I’ve been struggling hard with late night snacking and I wanted something I could enjoy that was good for me. These satisfy my sweet and salty cravings perfectly! They are so yummy I just had to share with you guys.

So what makes these bars so good? All the things!!
Flax seeds, Chia seeds, Almonds, Cashews, and Oats – are all high in fiber and protein, low carb, and full of nutrients and antioxidants, and promote healthy weight loss.

Recipe type: Snack
Serves: 15 bars
Ingredients
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • ½ cup honey, agave nectar, or pure maple syrup
  • ½ cup all natural nut butter, I used almond
  • ½ cup raw almonds, chopped
  • ½ cup raw cashews, chopped
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp flax seeds, ground or whole (I kept mine whole)
  • 2 tbsp sunflower seeds, roasted or raw
  • 1 heaping cup of dates (deglet nour or medjool), pitted and chopped
  • ½ cup of dried cranberries or dried cherries
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Rough chop your nuts.
  3. In a microwave safe bowl, warm nut butter and sweetner (honey, agave, or maple syrup) until they are a pourable consistency.
  4. Combine all your dry ingredients in a large bowl.
  5. Pour in your wet ingredients and with a large spatula, mix until fully combined.
  6. Prepare your pan (I used a brownie pan) with non-stick cooking spray.
  7. Dump ingredients into pan and use wax paper to press the mixture evenly into the pan.
  8. Bake for 20 minutes or until lightly golden.
  9. Let cool before slicing into bars.

Another thing I love about these bars is how long they last. They’ll last a few weeks in an air tight container. They can be packaged individually for easy, on-the-go snacking! There are no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives like store bought granola bars.

These have a great, chewy texture. They’re not hard and crunchy, but you can press them out thinner and bake them a little longer if you prefer a more crunchy bar. If you like sweet and spicy, add a dash of cayenne pepper for a little kick.
