My kids love to eat bars, but like so many convenience foods in stores these days, even the “healthy” kind, there are ingredients I’d prefer not to have on the regular.
These nut bars, adapted from Kelly Brogan’s book “A Mind of Your Own,” are delicious and SUPER easy to make. The hardest part about making these bars was cleaning the food processor afterward.
Preheat oven to 350.
In food processor, combine:
- 2 full cups of almonds, pecans, and cashews (I used the Aldi Simply Nature blend of almonds, cashews and pistachios…because that’s what I had)
- 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
- 1/2 cup cacao nibs (I used Lily’s dark chocolate chips)
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
Pour into separate bowl. Add 1/2 cup raw honey and mix with a fork until evenly covered.
Pat in a greased 8 X 8 pan lined with parchment paper and put in oven for 20 minutes.
Remove, let cool and stick in refrigerator to firm up. Cut and serve.
