These. You feel like eating THESE. Sweet. Salty. Chewy. Crunchy. Chocolatey. Healthy? Yepp! No bake trail mix granola bars are my kind of snack.
1/2 cup hone2 Tbsp sunflower seed butter
1 Tbsp coconut oil
3/4 cup old fashioned oats
1/2 cup crispy rice cereal
1/2 cup pretzels, crushed
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup dried fruit (I used raisins and cranberries)
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
1/3 cup chocolate chips
1. Line an 8x8 (20x20 cm) baking pan with a sheet of parchment paper; generously spray the foil with cooking spray and set aside.
2. Add brown rice syrup, sunflower seed butter, and coconut oil to a microwave-safe bowl and nuke on high until ingredients are fully melted and combined, about 1 minute. Remove from microwave and allow to cool and thicken.
3. Combine remaining ingredients in a large mixing bowl, stirring until evenly distributed. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix until fully incorporated.
4. Transfer mixture to pred pan and use a spatula or your hands to spread it evenly, making sure to press down firmly. Cover pan with a sheet of foil and place into the fridge to set, at least 2 hours but preferably overnight. When bars have set, remove from pan using the foil overhang, and use a sharp knife to cut into individual bars. Store bars in the fridge or freezer for best results.
ENJOY my people.
