Sun Bars

Only 3 ingredients are needed to make these delicious treats.
Course: Breakfast, Snack
Keyword: sun bar


  • 1 ½ cups sunflower seeds
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ¼ tsp coarse salt, or to taste


  • Toast seeds in a small non-stick skillet over medium high heat, stirring occasionally, until they're tan in color and fragrant. Some dark spots are fine.
  • Remove the skillet from heat and stir in the honey.
  • Return the skillet to the stove and stir constantly. Cook until honey thickens and begins to caramelize, about 3-4 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and press to desired thickness, either in a cooking pan* or silicone mold. Sprinkle the salt evenly over the top.
  • Allow to cool completely.


*If bars are pressed in a pan, reheat briefly to aid with removal.
*If bars are soft or sticky, the honey was not cooked long enough.
