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.

These look amazing! Great video too.
i love the simplicity of this! i’d eat the whole tray!
I don’t have Sunflower butter but I have Almond butter could I use that instead
Hi Barbara! Yes, almond butter will work great, as will any other nut or seed butter. Take your pick!
Love the layers! Snacks like this are the best!
Each bite has a few flavors from the layers, too!
White chocolate is super sweet for me. I think I will try it with more sunflower seed butter or almond butter. But the dark chocolate rocks!
Just when I think my granola addiction can’t get any more real, I see this witchcraft! Looks INSANELY delicious – and so creative!
granola has so many uses! i love it for its crunchy natural texture.
Oh my goodness, you and I ate Reese’s , Twix, AND Kit Kats the exact same way! I thought I was practically the one person who used to do that, with the deconstruction, hahaha. But as a diehard white chocolate fan, I’m VERY happy you decided to include it in these fabulous granola bars :)
hah, i knew i wasn’t alone! and can’t wait to start using white chocolate more. xo
You are rockin the videos lately! Everything about them is totally fun. Would have never thought to pair white choc with sunbutter, but it sounds so good to me right now! Wish I could have joined you in that bite. :)
I don’t use sunflower seed butter too often, but gosh it worked well here! And it’s a nice nut-free option for a sweet treat. And yes, having so much fun making videos! xo
Ohh I love these little slices of heaven! I’ve found that granola has SO many uses, but I can never seem to stop eating it long enough to try :)
It is so versatile!
