No-Bake Granola Bars

Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 10 minutes
Author Phoebe Lapine

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup raw sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 cup unsalted roasted peanuts
  • 1/4 cup raw pumpkin seeds
  • 3/4 cup rice krispies
  • 1/4 cup dried apricots sliced thinly
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup honey

Instructions

  1. Toss the first 8 ingredients together in a medium mixing bowl.
  2. In another medium mixing bowl, combine the peanut butter and honey. Heat in the microwave for 30 seconds until warm and gooey.
  3. Pour the nut mixture into the bowl with the peanut butter and stir well until everything is well incorporated and sticking together.
  4. Turn into a loaf pan lined with parchment. Place a sheet of plastic wrap over the nut mixture and carefully press it into the pan without crushing the crispies. You want to make sure it is even and compact. Cover the whole pan with another layer of plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours, or overnight.
  5. Remove the parchment paper granola bar bundle to a cutting board. Discard the plastic wrap and cut the granola into 8 or so bars, trimming the edges if you like. Wrap the individual bars in parchment paper to take with you throughout the week, or store in a Tupperware container until ready to eat.
