Casharoos — Seed, Fruit & Nut Bars

Casharoos — Seed, Fruit & Nut Bars

This recipe for “Casharoos” is inspired by Trio Bars. Costco had samples of these one day and I thought I’d give them a try–they were so tasty!! Unfortunately, they contain rice malt (grain) and evaporated cane juice so I thought I would see if I could find a recipe for them online (plus, I’m too cheap to buy them). I didn’t find a recipe for trio bars, but found a few for fruit and nut bars. I saved a few of them and then ended up creating my own recipe. They have a texture similar to a chewy granola bar. The actual trio bars contain a few more ingredients and have different dried fruits in them. We just use raisins but you could mix it up by using dried blueberries, cherries, cranberries, etc. I also try to use raw nuts and raw honey to make them more nutritious, but that is not necessary.

Casharoos

Ingredients:
1 cup raw cashews
1 cup raw almonds
1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds
1/2 cup organic raisins
1/3 cup shredded, unsweetened coconut
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
2 Tbsp. sesame seeds
2 Tbsp. flax seeds
1/4 tsp. salt
1/3 cup raw honey

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
2. Coarsely chop cashews and almonds.
3. Mix all dry ingredients together.
4. Add honey and stir to coat.
5. Line a 9X13 pan with parchment paper.
6. Pour mixture unto pan and spread out evenly with a rubber or silicone spatula.
7. Bake at 325 for 17-22 minutes. Place pan on cooling rack and let cool for 30 minutes or more. Lift the sides of the parchment paper to take the bars out. Cut bars into desired shapes and let cool completely. Bars will be soft at first but will become a chewy granola bar texture when cooled. Enjoy!

*I use raw nuts and raw honey because they are more nutritious. You can use regular honey and nuts (roasted/salted) though you may want to cut out the salt if you are using salted nuts.
*You can grease the pan instead of using parchment paper, but it is MUCH easier to get the bars out using parchment paper.
*If you don’t have all the ingredients, substitute more of another ingredient or put in something else completely!
