I am obsessed with Kind Bars. Especially the dark chocolate drizzled sea salt Kind Bars. I literally buy them by the dozens. I have a Kind Bar in my purse ALMOST all the time - for snacking emergencies, you know.
I have to admit that I was somewhat hesitant when I found a copycat Kind Bar recipe on www.theyummylife.com. How could I possibly make a granola bar at home that's BETTER than a KIND bar? Then I realized that I was approaching the recipe in the wrong way - maybe I should NOT strive to improve upon my favorite granola bar but simply to recreate the wholesome bars at home for a fraction of the cost of what I can buy them.
After making my own Kind bars - I think I love them even more than I did before. I love the fact that these bars are made without refined sugars and that they have only simple, healthy ingredients. If you are a lover of the Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Kind Bar - you are going to love this copycat recipe.
Dark Chocolate and Sea Salt Bars
Combine dry ingredients.
Stir together in a large bowl.
Bring to a boil in a small saucepan. Use a candy thermometer to determine when the mixture reaches 260 degrees.
Add mixture to nut mixture and stir to combine.
Press into a wax paper lined 9x31 inch pan. Use a greased glass bottom to press mixture evenly into pan.
Sprinkle with sea salt.
Melt chocolate chips in microwave and drizzle over nut mixture.
Cool 20 minutes and then slice into bars.
There you have it - Kind Bars that are just as delicious as their grocery store counterparts at a fraction of the cost.
If you are not drooling by now - there is something wrong. These sweet, salty, nutty, chocolaty bars are pure goodness.
I hope that you will give these homemade Dark Chocolate Sea Salt bars a try. You will not be disappointed.
