Set oven to preheat at 350 degrees
Toast the oats by placing them on a baking sheet (ungreased) or in a large glass baking dish in the oven for 10 minutes and stir every 3 minutes.
While the oats are toasting, put the honey, peanut butter and the coconut oil in a large saucepan and blend/melt together over medium heat (don't burn it). Remove from heat and stir in salt, cinnamon and vanilla until dissolved.
Leave oven set at 350 degrees when oats are finished toasting.
Pour toasted oats into honey mixture. Once fully blended, add in chips or cocao nibs and sunflower seeds. Chocolate will melt.
Prepare a second baking pan (this is not absolutely necessary but the first pan will be hot) by lining it with parchment paper.
Pour mixture onto parchment paper, spread, and press down into the pan. It will spread pretty easily with a spatula.
Bake for 8-10 minutes or until slightly brown on the edges.
Remove from oven, and lift the parchment paper with the bars off the pan and place onto a cutting board.
Let cool for at least an hour and a half.
Bars will be chewy and very slightly sticky.
