Homemade Kindness Bar
A homemade version of Kind Bars. This recipe makes a healthy kids snack that is gluten-free and dairy free. Made with nuts, seeds, and dried fruit, this homemade version tastes better than the store-bought version for a fraction of the cost.
- 1 cup assorted raw or toasted nuts and seeds
- 1/2 cup crisp rice cereal or puffed millet and/or chopped dried fruit
- 1/4 cup brown rice syrup
- Preheat the oven to 325°F.
- Generously spray a 6-inch square baking pan with non-stick spray. Cut a piece of baking parchment paper the same size of the base of the pan and line the pan with it. Generously spray the top of the baking sheet as well.
- In a large bowl, mix all of the nuts, cereal, and brown rice syrup until the nuts are evenly coated.
- Coat the back of a spatula with non-stick spray and press the mixture down firmly into the pan.
- Bake for twenty minutes. Remove the baking pan from the oven and place the entire pan on a wire rack. Allow the uncut Kindness Bars to cool for 20 minutes.
- Carefully run a knife along the outside of the bar and flip the pan over on to a cutting board.
- Cut into six bars.
- Allow the bars to completely cool before eating and storing.
- Leftover bars should be wrapped in foil and will be good for up to 1 week.
