Nutty Snack Bars

Ingredients

100g ground almonds
50g nut butter (cashew, almond or natural peanut butter)
80-100g coconut oil
130g honey
150g mixed nuts, roasted
10g chai and poppy seeds
50g raisins
70g dried apricots
50g dried cranberries
70g puffed rice
20g mixed seeds

Method

  • Pre-heat the oven to 200 degrees and roast the mixed nuts for 10-15 minutes until lightly golden.
  • Place the nut butter, ground almonds, coconut oil and honey into a saucepan and heat all together until melted. Once melted, add the other ingredients and mix well until covered.
  • Line a baking tray with silicone/ non-stick greaseproof paper and pour the mixture out. Press it down firmly and place in the fridge to set. When set, cut into bars and store in an airtight container – although we suspect they won’t last long!
