I am a little bit of a nut bar addict.

When I have a busy day coming up I tend to pop one into my handbag “just in case” and then I definitely, always end up eating it. Nut bars make for a simple, gluten-free, protein rich, snack on the run.

I eventually decided I had better find my own recipe so I could be sure of the ingredients. This recipe is a mega mix combination of a few different recipes that I have tried, utilising some of my own favourite nuts and seeds. The syrup-y mix is inspired by an Annabel Langbein recipe.

These were yummy and they keep in an airtight container in the pantry for ages.

Ingredients
  • 2 cups of rolled oats
  • 1 cup of cashew nuts
  • 1 cup of pumpkin seeds
  • ½ cup of sesame seeds
  • ½ cup of Chia seeds
  • 1 cup of dried cranberries
  • 120g butter
  • 6 Tablespoons of honey
  • 6 Tablespoons Raw sugar
  • ⅓ of a cup of peanut butter
Instructions
  1. Mix the nuts, oats and seeds (except the Chia seeds) together on a baking tray and bake in a moderate oven for 5- 10 minutes.
  2. Add to a large bowl, sprinkle in the dried cranberries and Chia seeds and stir to combine.
  3. In a small pot, melt together the butter, honey, sugar and peanut butter.
  4. Stir as it heats and simmer for 5 mins on a low heat.
  5. Add the sauce to the nut and oat mix and stir thoroughly. Transfer the mixture into a lined slice tray and press flat.
  6. Cool in the fridge for 3-4 hours or until completely set.
  7. When cool, cut into bars and enjoy.

In case anyone is interested, I did play around a bit with the recipe in an attempt to decrease the amount of sugar-y syrup. The result was I ended up with a lovely “crumble” topping that could be added to yoghurt or milk, but definitely not a bar. They syrup holds it all together and is thus a necessary part of the recipe. Oh well, that was a yummy week for breakfast at my house. ūüôā
