Honey Nut Bars - Honey Recipes By Manawa Honey NZ, Ruatahuna, Te Urewera, New Zealand

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup Manuka Honey 
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup dried blueberries
  • 1/4 cup shelled pistachios
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds (raw)
  • 1/8 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/8 cup flax seeds

Directions

Line an 200x200mm (8×8″) baking tray with baking paper, enough so the paper overhangs the edges of the baking pan.  This makes removing the bars a lot easier.

Add oats, almonds, pistachios, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, flax seeds, dried cherries and dried blueberries to a large mixing bowl.

Toss to combine.

Combine peanut butter, Manuka Honey, salt, cinnamon and vanilla in a microwaveable mixing bowl.  Microwave 30-40 seconds, or until honey is bubbling/foamy. Stir well to combine.

Pour melted peanut butter mixture over the dry ingredients and use a rubber spatula to stir it all together.

Transfer mixture to prepared baking pan.  Top with a sheet of baking paper and press down firmly into an even layer.  Really compact it well.

Refrigerate 2+ hours, or overnight.

Slice into 8 bars and serve.

Notes

We go for Manuka Honey in this recipe, to complement all the other health-giving ingredients and for its earthy taste. You can also use Rewarewa Honey for that full-bodied taste and the range of properties that it offers.
