Great quick on-the-go snack.

  • 1/2 c. almond butter, organic, raw
  • 1/3 c. honey, raw, unfiltered, organic
  • 1/4 c. coconut oil, raw, extra-virgin, organic
  • 1 c. oats, old fashioned rolled, dry, organic
  • 2 tbs. sesame seeds, organic
  • 2 tbs. sunflower seeds, raw, unsalted, organic
  • 1/4 c. coconut, unsweetened, flakes or chips, organic
  • 1/4 c. cranberries, dried, organic
  • 1/4 c. chocolate chips, dark, 70%, raw, organic

In medium saucepan, melt almond butter, honey, and coconut oil. Remove from heat and add remaining ingredients (I kept the chocolate chips out until I had put the mixture in the pan and it had cooled some - otherwise they melt right into the bars - although, that isn't necessarily a bad thing). Stir well and spread in an 8x8" pan. Chill for 2 hours. Cut into six bars.

Note: You may want to double the recipe to fill out the pan better.
