Almond-Honey Power Bar

January/February 2010

Your rating: None Average: 4.3 (340 votes)

Great for breakfast on the go! Golden roasted nuts, seeds and oats are enveloped by flavorful almond butter in these delectably chewy, no-fuss energy bars. Unrefined turbinado sugar adds a deep caramelly undertone. Feel free to use light brown sugar instead. Bars stored at room temperature will be softer than those that are refrigerated.



READER'S COMMENT:
"I made these yesterday, and the three of us devoured them. Must make more today. Reminds me of eating Cracker Jacks!!! But good for you. I used peanut butter instead of the almond butter. Really wonderful!!!!! "

I made these yesterday & omitted the sugar completely. Instead of almond butter I used un-hulled tahini spread which worked like a treat. I used goji berries instead of the apricots & sultanas instead of currants. I followed the recipe for the rest but instead of refrigerating the tray when I was done I put it back in a 180 oven for 10 minutes which glued it altogether & made them crunchy & yum!! Oh yeh I put in a couple tablespoons of black chia just to mould it altogether, success!!

SO easy and delicious!!

I made these for my dad because he has to keep his cholesterol down and I figured this would be a good thing for him to grab instead of something unhealthy. He LOVED them! It's so easy to add different ingredients too! Instead of puff cereal I used honey nut cheerios. They came out great

quick, healthy, easy

Cheaper and Better For You Granola Bars

I've made these granola bars several times now and they are now a staple on the kitchen counter. The ingredients can easily be varied - from nut butters, to dried fruit. Try Peanut butter with raisins, currants, and chopped peanuts; or cashew butter with dried cherries, apriocots, and chopped cashews. Make sure to line the pan with foil, coat with non-stick spray, and use an oil coated piece of foil to help press the mixture into the pan to make really firm bars.

simple, uses whole ingredients, easy to make organic, ingredients can be varied

Easy and tasty!

These are great bars for an on-the-go breakfast or an after-school snack. My 6-yr-old loves to help me make them. I usually let the honey mixture cool a little, then pour it over the other ingredients and let him mix it up with his hands. I love that these are made with only almonds for nuts since we have a peanut allergy in the house! I usually sub ground flaxseed for whole.

Easy, healthy

Delicious, satisfying and versatile

I made these according to the recipe, but w/o the extra sugar as I used the sweetened puffs, a little more salt, and no golden raisins (I used apricots). I added raw pumpkin seeds and some toasted amaranth seeds for extra protein.

These held together well after they chilled for half an hour. Everyone loved them. Will be making again and trying some variations such as smooth peanut butter instead of almond butter.

tasty and healthy
