*keep in mind this is a super easy recipe to adapt! I barely had any sesame seeds so I substituted some poppy seeds. Walnuts could work over pecans, dark chocolate instead of milk…you get the idea.
- 1/4 cup sesame seeds
- 1/4 cup poppy seeds
- 1/4 cup slivered almonds
- 1 cup sunflower seeds
- 1 cup extra-thick rolled oats
- 1/2 cup shredded, sweetened coconut
- 1/2 cup golden flax seeds
- 1/2 cup chopped pecans
- 1/2 cup sweetened, dried cherries
- 1/2 cup high quality chocolate chips (I used Ghirardelli)
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
Add all dry ingredients to a large bowl and mix together. Slowly add honey, while mixing ingredients with a wooden spoon in your other hand (or have someone mix while you pour)! Microwave peanut butter for 30 seconds to 1 minute to thin it out a bit. Add peanut butter to mixture. Once ingredients are evenly incorporated press into a baking pan.
Refrigerate bars for at least 2 hours before cutting into squares. Bars are best right out of the fridge, but can still be crumbly (regardless, they are still delicious). Enjoy plain or over oatmeal, plain greek yogurt, even ice cream…
