Made a double batch. My family LOVED them...and so did I. They're a great combo of crunchy, chewy, sweet, and filling. Didn't blow my diet at all during the week I had these in the house because they are satisfying.
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 do enjoy this type of bar but could not indulge because of the high sugar content.
I threw these together last night using what I had in the house. I used peanut butter, cheerios, craisins, dried cherries, raisins & light brown sugar, but everything else was the same. They turned out wonderful! I cut them into smaller pieces so they are around 100 calories per serving. I am going to make them again with the right ingredients later this week. I bought everything today. I bought the nuts and dried fruit in the bulk section and only bought what I needed, to save money. The turbinado sugar was not too hard to find or expensive, however the almond butter was $8-$10 a jar. I passed on that. I will stick to my Smart Balance peanut butter. The large jar was on sale today for $5.
REALLY like these and find that the ingredients are not that hard to get on hand.
