Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a food processor, pulse the first 6 ingredients until finely chopped (it’s ok if there are few coarsely chopped pieces).
Add the honey and sunflower and pulse until starting to combine.
Pour the mixture into a 9 x 9 inch pan, greased then line with parchment and press down into the pan until completely even.
Bake for 25 minutes. Let the bars completely cool before cutting with a serrated knife into bars.
Serve. *Cool, place in Ziploc bags, label and freeze. Defrost to room temperature and enjoy!
