Sticky Seed and Nut Trail Mix

Let's talk about Kind bars.

Who doesn't love them?

So chewy and delicious.


And...I decided to try and make some of my own, but a paleo version.  Good news is they taste great!  Bad news is they fall apart.  Good news is - you can usually make a bad outcome okay with the right perspective :)

This is so yummy...I've been munching on it all day.  Only down side is those darn little pesky chia seeds that get stuck in weird places in your teeth...but I can live with that : )

Sticky Seed and Nut Trail Mix
adapted from Primal Bites Blog

1 cup almonds
1/2 cup walnuts or pecans
1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
1/3 cup raisins
2/3 cup pumpkin seeds
2/3 cup unsalted sunflower seeds
3 TBSP sesame seeds
3 TBSP chia seeds
2 TBSP coconut oil
1/2 cup honey
pinch of salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line an 13x9 baking pan with parchment paper and then grease the parchment paper.

Place the almonds and walnuts/pecans in a food processor and pulse until roughly chopped (or just chop the nuts the good old fashioned way)  In large pot on stove top melt the coconut oil and honey together and stir until smooth.  Add all of the remaining ingredients to the pot and mix until thoroughly combined.

Pour mixture into prepared pan and press firmly into pan.  Bake for 20 minutes.  Allow to cool completely before breaking up the mixture into large chunks.  Store in airtight container.

* If you want to make these even more delicious add some chocolate chips...but then they aren't so good for you anymore : )
