Make your own delicious homemade kind bars, quickly and easily from scratch without fussy ingredients! This almond pepita sesame honey variety is so delicious, but feel free to substitute ingredients and make your own flavors. These easy homemade honey kind bars will quickly become a staple in your house as they have in mine!
Have you made your own Kind bars before? I made them a looooong time ago, but to be honest, the ingredients in some recipes out there are pretty fussy,
I would have made these bars completely with honey, but as it turns out, honey doesn’t firm up as well as other sweeteners so the bars stay pretty sticky. These bars with half honey can be a little sticky, but not too bad. I like to store them in between sheets of wax or parchment paper and then the stickiness isn’t a problem at all.
These were so good, and gone so fast! I’ll be making another variety soon. What is your favorite Kind bar? Or what’s your favorite combination of nuts and seeds in bars like these?
Homemade Almond Honey Kind Bars
- 190 grams roasted unsalted almonds (a little more than 1 1/4 cups)
- 40 grams roasted unsalted pepitas (about 1/4 cup)
- 20 grams toasted sesame seeds (about 2 tablespoons)
- 1/2 cup puffed grain cereal (make sure to use GF cereal, if necessary!)
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 2 tablespoons brown rice syrup (or light corn syrup)
- Sea salt to top
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
- In a bowl stir together all the ingredients except the sea salt. Prep a 9x9 baking dish with parchment paper, then pour the mixture in and spread it evenly, pressing the mixture down as well as possible.
- Place in the oven and bake for 18-20 minutes until the syrup can be seen bubbling in between some of the nuts and seeds. Remove and let cool.
- If possible when the mixture has cooled quite a bit but not completely, take a sharp knife and cut into 9 squares. They may come apart a little, but just gently press back together and let them cool the rest of the way. I place them in the freezer for 10-15 minutes or so until hard. Then store in an airtight container between sheets of parchment or wax paper.
