If you're a fellow fan of kind bars, then you'll really enjoy this homemade granola bar recipe. It's my adaptation of a very tasty nut-free "kind" bar recipe, using a combination of crunchy seeds and coconut sweetened with only honey and dried fruits. The hint of CBD honey is optional here, but is definitely my personal preference.

Freeze For 4 months

Best by 2 weeks refrigerated


Shopping List
  • 3/4 cup shelled pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 33333333/100000000 cup honey (Note 1)
  • 1/4 cup goji berries (or cranberries)
  • 3 tablespoons ground flax meal
  • 1 tablespoon sunflower butter
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

Instructions
  1. Step 1: Preheat the oven to 300°F. Line 1 (8 inch x 8 inch) pan with parchment paper so that the paper flaps hang off of two of the sides.
  2. Step 2: Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and use a spoon or spatula to mix everything evenly together. It will be sticky.
  3. Step 3: Transfer the bar mixture into the lined baking dish. Use the spatula or spoon to press everything down evenly, including the corners. Use an additional small piece of parchment to firmly press the top of the bar mixture really pack in the ingredients so that they hold better after baking. Remove the parchment once the top is flat.
  4. Step 4: Bake for 20 minutes and then cool on a wire rack at least 30 minutes. Refrigerate (don't freeze yet or they won't slice well) until completely chilled and hardened. Resist the urge to take them out too quickly, or the bars will not hold. Once cold, use the parchment flaps to lift the bars from the baking dish and transfer to a cutting board. Cut into small bars and individually wrap and store in the freezer.
  5. Serve: Grab a bar straight from the freezer and set on the counter 5 minutes before eating. When traveling, these bars hold together best when chilled. Enjoy.

Recipe Notes

Note 1: I like to use equal parts traditional honey and CBD-infused honey for additional health benefits. Keep in mind the CBD flavor is quite strong, so don't use too much if or it will overwhelm the other flavors.

Recipe Notes

Note 1: Maple syrup will not work as well here, since it is less sticky.
