Easy homemade trail mix bars with peanut butter, nuts, seeds and fruit (or chocolate)!


  • 1 cup nut butter
  • 3 Tbsp. honey
  • 4 Tbsp. coconut oil
  • 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup chopped almonds
  • ½ cup roasted sunflower seeds
  • ½ cup chopped shelled pistachios
  • ½ cup pitted dates, chopped
  • ¼ cup unsweetened dried cranberries or dark chocolate chips
  • ¼ tsp. kosher salt


  1. Line an 8-inch baking dish with extra-large piece of parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Place the nut butter, honey and coconut oil in a microwaveable glass bowl. Microwave on high for 30 seconds. Stir to combine.
  3. Add the oats, almonds, sunflower seeds, pistachios, dates, dried cranberries or chocolate chips and salt and stir until thoroughly mixed.
  4. Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking dish and press into a firm, even layer. Refrigerate at least 1 hour or until form.
  5. Lift the bars out of the baking dish using the sides of the parchment paper and place on a cutting board. Cut into 16 bars.
  6. Store in an airtight container or a sealed plastic bag in the refrigerator.


Substitution Tip: Use almond butter instead of peanut butter, if desired. Use any combination of chopped nuts.
