Seed and nut packed energy bars from Bon Appetite.
1¼ cups white and/or black sesame seeds
¾ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1/2 cup unsalted, roasted peanuts
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
¼ cup honey (4 tablespoons)
2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350°. Line a 8"x8" glass dish with parchment paper, leaving a generous overhang on all sides. Mix sesame seeds, coconut, peanuts, and salt in a large bowl. Mix honey, peanut butter, and vanilla in a small bowl. Add to sesame seed mixture and mix well.
Scrape mixture into prepared baking dish; press firmly into an even layer. Bake until golden brown around the edges, 20–25 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool until firm, 30–40 minutes. Lift out of baking dish (if it starts to crumble, let cool longer) and cut into 16 bars. Let cool completely.
Do Ahead: Bars can be made 3 days ahead. Store tightly wrapped at room temperature.
