Ingredients

  • ¾ cup Peanut Butter (I use ground nut only natural peanut butter with nothing else added)
  • ¼ cup Wildflower Honey
  • ½ cup Agave Nectar
  • 1 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • ½ cup Raw Almonds , chopped in a food processor or chopper
  • 3 tablespoons Chia Seeds
  • 2 tablespoons Hemp Hulls
  • 2 tablespoons Raw Pumpkin Seeds (shelled)
  • 2 tablespoons Raw Sunflower hulls
  • 3 tablespoons Roasted , Salted Pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
  • ½ cup dried Dates , chopped in a food processor or chopper
  • ¼ cup dried Cranberries , sweetened (preferably with juice)
  • ¼ cup dried Cherries , depending on your needs) sweetened
  • 4 cup Puffed Brown Rice Cereal (gluten-free or regular

Instructions

  1. Line a 13 x 9 inch baking pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the almonds, all the seeds, dried fruits and the rice cereal. Toss with hands to fully combine.
  3. In a large pot (large enough to hold all the ingredients with room to mix them together) combine the honey, agave nectar and peanut butter on medium low heat. Stir frequently until the peanut butter (and honey if semi-solid) melt and begin to bubble; approximately 3-5 minutes. Turn off heat. Stir in the salt and vanilla.
  4. Pour the cereal-nut-fruit mixture into the saucepan and mix together to ensure the dry mixture is all coated with the wet ingredients.
  5. Turn the mixture into the prepared pan. Spread it evenly around the pan. With the back of a mixing spoon, press the mixture down to compress it and flatten the top. Place wax paper on the top of the bars and place in the refrigerator until fully set (approximately 2 hours).
  6. Slice and keep refrigerated in and air tight container or freeze.
