Nut Granola Bars, take 2

My first nut granola bars, were and are a huge hit. I have had emails, comments and even fellow bloggers have blog the recipe on their sites. They are a huge hit with you and an even bigger hit at our house. 

I have been playing around with the recipe and I came up with another keeper! 
The Ingredients:
1 cup Almonds
1/2 cup Pecan
1 cup Cashews
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup cranberries
1/4 cup chocolate chips (dairy-free, nut-free, grain-free)
1/4 cup coconut flakes
1/4 cup raw honey
1/4 cup coconut butter
1/4 cup Coconut Oil

The Directions:
Add Almonds and Pecans into the food processor and rough chop. Pour them into a bowl and add pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, cranberries and coconut flakes.

In a sauce pan add raw honey, almond coconut butter, coconut butter and coconut oil. Once it is smooth and creamy add the nuts. 

Pour mixture into a 8x8 (with parchment) pan and spread evenly. Put in freezer for 2 hours to chill and set. 

** Leave the nuts chunkier. You may need to adapt the amount of the liquid. Too much liquid will leave the bars more gooey.

  1. What is almond coconut butter? And where do you get that and coconut butter? Have you ever soaked the nuts before making this?

  3. I've been on a semi paleo regime for sometime and I have reaping the benefits. Now I have a blog when I need some inspiration and ideas on what to cook so I can take that next big step and go totally paleo. Thank you

  4. These bars look so beautiful, and the combination of nuts and seeds sounds yummy. I'm always looking for nourishing treats, and these fit the criteria perfectly.

  5. 3 Studies PROVE Why Coconut Oil Kills Fat.

    This means that you literally burn fat by eating coconut fats (in addition to coconut milk, coconut cream and coconut oil).

    These 3 studies from major medicinal journals are sure to turn the traditional nutrition world upside down!
