If you’re like me, you probably had (or still have) a particular way of eating different candy bars. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups – I ate the crimped edges first, then the middle. Twix and Kit Kat, it was the outer straight edges first, the cookie parts last.
After eating a few of these Seedy White Chocolate Granola Slices, reminiscent of a homemade candy bar, I noticed myself developing a similar routine. Along with being completely enamored by their texture and layers of flavor.
I’m typically not a white chocolate fan, but blending it with toasty, nutty, sunflower butter turns it into something different in the best of ways. It’s what enrobes the Udi’s Au Naturel Granola (just oats, honey, and oil) and extra sunflower seeds, making a sweet, creamy, slightly crunchy middle layer.
Dark chocolate is the bottom layer as well as drizzled on top, acting as both a foundation and contrast in flavor. Less sweet, more depth, and an added artistic touch. Try and use the best quality dark chocolate you can find — it certainly makes a difference.
Plus, they’re made with only five ingredients and ready in 30 minutes, so completely feasible to whip up in an afternoon. Better yet, they hold up perfectly in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. If they last that long.
