Sesame, Rice Cereal and Nut Butter Bars (Dairy and Gluten Free with Refined Sugar Free Option)

We are preparing to go on a trip and have a very early morning flight to start off.  I figured I would make some bars that can be taken along to help us start our day.  I like adding sesame seeds as they give calcium and zinc.  The coconut and coconut oil is another favourite as is it a great support on our gut systems.  The rice cereal just adds a nice crunch;) These are quite tasty, I hope we have some left before we go.


  • 1/3 cup sesame seeds
  • 1/2 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup nut butter (peanut, almond, cashew etc.)
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon gluten free vanilla
  • 2 cups rice cereal
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1/3 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips (optional)

  1. Grease a 9 x 9 dish and set aside
  2. In a small pan lightly toast sesame seeds by heating them and stirring frequently for 3-4 minutes.
  3. Combine, oil, nut butter, honey and vanilla.
  4. In a large bowl combine sesame seeds, rice cereal, coconut and chia seeds.
  5. Pour oil mixture over cereal mixture and stir to fully coat and combine.
  6. Pour into prepared dish and set in fridge for a couple hours until firm.
  7. Cut into bars and store in a sealed container in the fridge.  They will melt if kept in warm air too long.
