How To Make Vanilla Almond Snack Bars

Packed with sunflower seeds, almonds, and Medjool dates, these chewy almond snack bars are flavored with honey and vanilla extract for healthy baked snacks.

Preparation: 1 hour 10 minutes
Cooking: 20 minutes
Chill Time: 1 hour
Total: 2 hours 30 minutes



  • cuphoney,or brown rice syrup
  • 1tsppure vanilla extract
  • ¼cupalmond meal
  • tspsalt
  • 1tbspalmond butter
  • 1⅓cupswhole almonds,roughly chopped
  • 5Medjool dates,coarsely chopped
  • ¾cupsalted sunflower seeds


  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Line an 8 or 9-inch square baking pan with parchment paper with enough overhang on the sides to easily remove the bars from the pan. Set aside.

  2. Using a rubber spatula or wooden spoon, mix the honey, vanilla, almond meal, salt, and almond butter together until combined. Fold in the almonds, chopped dates, and sunflower seeds until combined.

  3. Transfer mixture to prepared baking pan and press very firmly into an even layer.

  4. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely in the pan set on a wire rack for 1 hour, then transfer to the refrigerator to chill for 1 more hour. This helps firm up the bars which make them stay compact.

  5. Remove bars from the pan using the overhang on the sides and cut into bars.

  6. Serve and enjoy.
