Before every vacation I scour the internet looking for fun, healthy snacks that are easy to take with us and with our upcoming Cali trip, I was on the prowl! Bars are always the way to go, so why wouldn’t I attempt to make one of our favorites? KIND Bars are the real deal.
I found this recipe from Peas and Thank You for homemade KIND bars and decided to take that and run!
“KIND” Bar Crumbles
Recipe adapted from Peas and Thank You
2 tbsp ground flax seed
1 tbsp flax seed
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup agave
1 tsp salt
1 cup almonds, roasted & chopped
1 cup unsweetened, shredded coconut
1 cup rice cereal <– Loved the added crispiness from this!
1/4 cup dried apricots, chopped
1/4 cup dried cherries
1/4 cup raisins
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large bowl, mix ground flax seed, flax seed, honey, agave, and salt. Mix everything until well combined. Add the rest of the ingredients to the bowl and mix until everything is evenly coated.
Spread everything onto a parchment covered baking sheet in ~1/2″ layer. Make sure to really smash it all together so it really sticks!
Bake about 20 minutes, turning half way through, until the bars have become slightly crispy.
Let cool completely before breaking into pieces. And try not to eat too much of it while packaging it up! 😉
