NO BAKE SUNBUTTER ENERGY BARS

We loved the taste of the sunflower seed butter in these healthy no-bake bars. I think it’s the punch of saltiness combining with the sweetness of the honey.

It just works so well together.

Speaking of honey, look at this:

A thing of beauty. Local, raw honey in all its glory. How one could ever choose a powdery, manufactured sweetener over this liquid gold is a mystery to me.

INGREDIENTS FOR THIS RECIPE:

After you’ve stocked up on local honey you will need a few other things to make these No Bake Sunbutter Energy Bars. Here is what you’ll need:

  • sunflower seed butter
  • quick oats
  • ground flaxseed
  • honey
  • vanilla
  • sea salt

HOW TO MAKE SUNBUTTER ENERGY BARS

Your basic stir and mix routine is all that is required to prepare these easy no bake bars.

TIP! I always start with a fresh jar of sunflower seed butter. I find the bars hold together best when the oils are loosey-goosey if you know what I mean.

Combine the sunbutter with the honey in a small saucepan and lightly melt them together over low heat.

Then press the mixture into your dish.

TIP! Use the back of a flat spatula to really press the mixture down. This ensures your bars hold together well and don’t crumble.

Then just pop the pan into the fridge.

When they have set, slice into bars.

Super easy!

I used to like those Quaker Chewy Bars as a teenager and these are kind of like a healthier, non processed version. You could add a few chocolate chips to these if they called your name.

A little punch of chocolate ever hurts, right? ๐Ÿ˜‰
