Trail Mix Nut Bars


It's been a long time since I've posted any recipes, and I'm sorry for that but I'm back with (almost literally back-to-school snacks). I've wanted to do a breakfast nut bar without dates, for those of you who don't have a food processor (or can't be bothered to pull it out of the cupboard) and also I feel like they get very mushy and are less crunchy. This options is only with nuts and honey, which the vegans ca replace with rice syrup - it's more sticky and thick than agave syrup so it will hold the nuts together properly. I've also added almond butter for extra gooeyness :) hope you enjoy x

100 gr almonds
100gr pecans
50gr sunflower seeds
50gr pumpkin seeds
50 goji berries
1/2 tsp cinnamon
7 tablespoons honey or rice syrup
2 -3 tablespoons almond butter (optional)

Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a square baking tray with baking paper. 
Roughly chop the almonds and pecans into smaller sizes, and mix all the nuts in a bowl. Pour in the honey and almond butter and mix until even spread.  Fill the baking tray with the mixture and spread out evenly to get a flat top. 
Bake in the oven for about 15/20 minutes, making sure the honey doesn't burn. 
It's very important to let them cool off for at least 30mins, so they have a chance to solidify and stick together properly. I keep them wrapped in individual baking paper, so they don't stick together, in an airtight container in the fridge.
