Judy's Bumble Bars

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Amber W

My mom tried a Bumble bar when in Idaho and recreated the recipe. This is her basic recipe which is great. I have tried dried fruit with the basic recipe for a wonderful taste. Note: Since I got this recipe I have not been able to find evaporated cane syrup. My mom's solution was to dissolve pure cane sugar and cook it down a little to make it thicker. I just use corn syrup.

Even better than the store bought ones, super easy to make and can customize nuts and sugar content. Don't bake too long or they will end up crunchy, however they are amazing as crunchy bars too. You can't go wrong. I used brazil nuts instead of macadamias. Easy to find plain or maple agave and organic light corn syrup from health food stores. Don't be shy with the vanilla and salt, it brings all the favors out.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 12 cups sesame seeds
  • 34 cup almond meal
  • 12 cup flax seed (golden flax is preferred)
  • 12 cup macadamia nuts (finely chopped)
  • 14 cup cashews (finely chopped)
  • 12 cup brown rice syrup (or corn syrup)
  • 2 tablespoons evaporated cane syrup (or corn syrup)
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 12 teaspoon salt


  1. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and press into a well oiled 9 X 13 pan (I use olive oil spray).
  2. Bake for 20 minutes at 300 degrees.
  3. Cut in to bars while hot (it's so much easier than trying to cut when cool!).
