Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups nuts and seeds of choice I used 1/2 cup each of chopped pecans, sliced almonds, and sunflower seeds
  • ½ cup flaked coconut toasted
  • ½ cup dried fruit of choice I used dried blueberries + cherries
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ cup creamy almond butter any nut butter you like would work
  • cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Line an 8x8” square pan with parchment paper and lightly grease with coconut oil. Set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, stir together the nuts and seeds, flaked coconut, dried fruit, chia seeds, kosher salt, and cinnamon.
  3. 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.
  4. Pour the almond butter/maple syrup mixture over the dry ingredients and stir until all of the dry ingredients are coated.
  5. 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.
  6. Store the granola bars in a sealed bag or container in the refrigerator for 2 weeks or in the freezer for a few months.
