Honey Nut Bars

I got this recipe from Bridget, one of the owners of our gym. It is SO delicious I'm going to make them all the time for snacks!

Preheat oven to 350ยบ and grease a 13x9 casserole dish with coconut oil.

Place the following nuts into a food processor, grind into a coarse nut flour.
1/2 cup cashews
1 cup pumpkin seeds
1 cup almonds

Put into a medium sized bowl and stir in the following:
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
1 cup raisins
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon (I used 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg as I do not like cinnamon)

Melt in a small saucepan:
1/2 cup of honey
1/4 cup high quality coconut oil.
*I'm not sure what "high quality" means but you'll have to go somewhere like Whole Foods for this and I just bought the most affordable, they only had 3 there and it worked great.

Pour honey/oil over the nut mixture and stir until everything is evenly coated with it. Press evenly into the prepared casserole dish and bake for 20 minutes or until lightly browned.

Cool for 20 minutes, the very gently cut and remove bars and allow to cool on a plate. They will be crumbly but if they fall apart gently mold them back together. As they cool they will harden.

Store in tupperware to snack on all week!

  2. ! I bet you don't even look at this post anymore. I found your site via the googles while looking for "Paleo Nut Clusters."

    Just thought you should know, I'll be making this for touring around on my bicycle. Thanks a lot.
