I made these last night and they were a complete hit! Kid tested mother approved, we all loved them. I too made some substitutions for berries that I already had like blueberries and cranberries as well as I used Kashi go lean original and picked out the fiber twigs. I love that this recipe calls for healthy ingredients like unrefined sugar and almond butter, I used sea salt too. Either way they came out perfect. Thanks!

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.

From the Carbohydrate Exchanges, I would guess there is a total of ~38 g Carbs and 23 g of those from sugars, the rest from starches.
I made this recipes and drizzled melted dark chocolate over the top! Adds a few more calories but with a large glass of milk this is a great meal! My family loved them and ate them all up. I also used 7 whole grain honey puffs which were fabulous. Used dried apricots and cranberries. Lots of variations that can be made!
Way too sweet for me!! I think I would love these with about half as much sugar.
Wonderful recipe! Very quick and easy. Great for a mid-day snack.
I used peanut butter instead of almond butter and they came out fine. I also added in dried dates and cranberries. Keep them in the fridge and they'll be good for weeks.
I love this recipe. I used dried cherries instead of golden raisins because my bulk grocery was out of golden raisins. I think the currants are essential - they make a nice sweet spot and fool husbands into thinking they're eating chocolate chips!!! :)
I can't wait to try some more fruit variations!!!
