Seedy Nutty Bars

  • 1 1/2 C. assorted nuts and seeds

    • cashews, almonds, pecans, peanuts (I toasted all of these)

    • sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds (pepitas were toasted)

  • 1/3 C. crispy brown rice cereal (Rice Krispies work too)

  • 1/2 C. raisins (I used a combination of golden and regular, dried cherries work too)

  • 1/3 C. Organic light corn syrup or Brown rice syrup

  • Pinch of kosher salt IF none of your nuts are salted…my pepitas were salted

  1. Line an 8X8 pan with parchment paper and spray w nonstick cooking spray

  2. Preheat oven to 325.

  3. Stir together all the nuts, seeds and raisins.

  4. Mix in the syrup well.

  5. Transfer to pan and use wet hands to press press press down into a tight square.

  6. Bake 20 minutes.

  7. Cool and cut into bars. If you will not eat the whole batch in 2 days, put into refrigerator to keep moist and chewy.

*** It’s also fun to put the corn syrup in a glass bowl and microwave it for a minute, stirring about half way w 1/4 C. peanut butter to mix into the nuts and seeds.
