I have been looking for a breakfast bar recipe where there was no added refined sugar & when I read the changes others made to omit the sugar I thought I would try it. I did not use raisins but used dried cranberries & dried unsweetened/ unsulfured mangoes from Trader Joes. I also drizzled a little dark chocolate on top to mimic the breakfast bars I was used to eating. Delicious!!! Will make again & again! Overall healthy & w/no added preservatives & less costly which was what I was trying to accomplish.
Almond-Honey Power Bar
From EatingWell: January/February 2010
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.

I've been looking for a healthy granola bar recipe for years now that didn't taste like cardboard and these bars are so yummy, my family loved them. I'm making them tomorrow for the soccer team.
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!!
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
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.
