Raisin Nut Bars Recipe

September 14, 2017
by Nicole Gulotta for Thrive Market

Granola bars are always a favorite for school lunches or picnic baskets, so we made our own version using a short list of easy-to-find ingredients. The result is a chewy, nutty, slightly sweet treat both kids and adults will love. (Seriously, the hardest part will be waiting for them to cool!) Make these on Sunday for handy snacking all week long.

Raisin Nut Bars

Yield: 5 bars
Active Time:


Preheat oven to 350 F. Line a 9- x 5-inch loaf pan with parchment paper overhanging at least 4 inches on the long side of the pan.

Add raisins, mixed nuts, coconut chips, chia seeds, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt to a large bowl; stir until well combined. Spray a measuring cup with cooking spray, then measure the honey and add it to the bowl; stir well. Pour mixture into prepared loaf pan.

Spray hands with cooking spray, then use fingers to spread the mixture, evenly pressing down and into the corners. Bake for 22 minutes, or until edges are golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool for 30 minutes. Using flaps of the parchment, push loaf down to reshape, if needed, then wait 30 minutes more. Lift the bar out of the pan and flip over onto a cutting board, then let cool completely, 1 to 2 hours more. Cut into 2-inch bars.
