Bumble Bars

These are a little different than the “traditional” bumble bars made with sugar, Cheerios, etc, that my family made growing up.  I’ve put my Healing Cuisine spin on it!  Feel free to add a handful or two of 73+% dark chocolate chips to the bars, too.  Stir in with the nuts.

Bumble Bars

2 cups raw sesame seeds
1 cup raw sunflower seeds
1 cup raw cashews
1 cup coconut flakes
2 cups organic raw unsalted Valencia peanut butter OR almond butter
1/3 cup honey
2 tsp sea salt

1.)  Line a 9 x 13 inch baking pan (or a 9 x 9 inch pan for thicker bars) with unbleached parchment paper.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2.)  In a large bowl, stir together Valencia peanut butter, honey, and sea salt.  Stir in nuts and coconut flakes, mixing until evenly combined.

3.)  Pour and spread mixture into baking pan.  Bake for 12 minutes.  Remove from oven.  Cool to room temperature.  Cut into individual bars, wiping knife clean between cuts as needed.  Enjoy or store in fridge until ready to eat.

  1. mmm! I cut out grains and sugars almost 3 weeks ago and feel great. Once I’m down to my goal weight I might re-introduce honey, but for now I’ll keep this recipe in the back of my head.

  2. Any other idea besides honey? I want to make this! I’m type one diabetic and lately have cut out sugar and most gluten to try and control it even better and it’s working. Even with being type 1- insulin dependent its still just helping! Any other sweetner ideas? Sounds so good! Been reading your blog and making tons of things. Loving it. You are a lifesaver! Literally:-)

  3. Hi WhitY, You can leave the honey out all together. I often make these without any sweetener at all, more of a salty treat. You can also do stevia or xylitol if you wish. If you’re leaving the honey out and not replacing it with anything, you can omit the baking if you wish. You’d have raw bars then, still so tasty and leaving all the oils completely intact! Just store in the freezer for about 6 hours to harden, cut the bars, then store in fridge or freezer after that.
