These No Bake Sprouted Nut & Seed Granola Bars are an easy and delicious granola bar that’s way cleaner than most of what you can find at the grocery store! Best of all, you can customize them to suit your taste buds. You’re going to love these gluten-free, paleo, and vegan granola bars!
- 1½ cups sprouted nuts + seeds, I used a combo of chopped sprouted almonds, sprouted sunflower seeds, and sprouted pumpkin seeds
- ½ cup flaked coconut, chopped
- ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- ½ cup creamy almond butter
- ¼ cup maple syrup
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 ounces dark chocolate, chopped
- Line an 8×8” square pan with parchment paper and lightly grease with coconut oil. Set aside.
- In a large mixing bowl, stir together the sprouted nuts & seeds, flaked coconut, kosher salt, and cinnamon.
- Stir together the almond butter, maple syrup, and coconut oil in a small microwave-safe bowl or liquid measuring cup. Microwave the mixture for 30 seconds – it should be hot and pour easily. Stir in the vanilla extract.
- Pour the nut butter/maple syrup mixture over the dry ingredients and stir until all of the dry ingredients are coated.
- Pour the sticky mixture into the prepared pan and then use a flat-bottomed drinking glass, measuring cup, or spatula to press the mixture into a firm, even layer in the pan. Cover and place in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour before cutting into 10 granola bars – the longer you let them set, the less crumbly they’ll be when you cut into them.
- After the bars are cut, place the dark chocolate in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 30-second increments, stirring between each until the chocolate is completely melted and smooth. Use a fork to drizzle the chocolate over the bars, or put the melted chocolate in a small Ziplock/piping bag and snip the corner to drizzle over the bars.
- Store the granola bars in a sealed bag or container in the refrigerator for 2 weeks or in the freezer for a few months.
I got my sprouted almonds, sprouted sunflower seeds, and sprouted pumpkin seeds from Nuts.com. You can also find them at many health food stores.
