Honey Nut Bars (Gluten Free, Paleo)

When you combine nuts with honey and cacao you end up with a real treat. This is why I think these bars will be your favorite to go bars when you need a little snack during the day. I just need to remind you to cut them into small squares, because they taste so good and you might end up eating more than you should.

This recipe does contain dairy as I used butter in the honey mixture. If you can not tolerate dairy, you can replace the butter with coconut oil.

    This recipe looks so awesome, except I always thought nuts are best consumed sprouted and raw. Any thoughts???

      Hi Cheryl, yes it is true. You can bake the crust only in this recipe then add the nuts on top and refrigerate. Nuts are known for their phytic acid and other antinutrients properties that can irritate the gut lining and create inflammation in some people. sprouting nuts and seeds is an easy and effective way to remove most of the phytic acid and antinutrients content, making them significantly more nutritious.

    they look soo yummy but i have heard that honey should not be heated as it becomes toxic. may be nice to add honey after refrigeration. but they look too good.

      Arie, the healthful enzymes found in raw honey can withstand heat for short periods of time at temperatures around 320 degrees Fahrenheit.

    Make.These.Now. These little nuggets of goodness are divine and the recipe could not be easier. I did not have macadamia nuts on hand so I subbed pecans. For someone who does not like snacks sickeningly sweet, like myself, these are perfection. The cacao nibs give a subtle hint of chocolate that is quite lovely. For variation the next time that I make these, I might try a thin layer of melted chocolate either between the crust and nuts or drizzled on top and a sprinkling of finishing salt for the ultimate salty/sweet combo. This is the first recipe that I have made from the blog and it was a total success. The rest look quite beautiful as well and I can’t wait to make the next one. Thanks!
