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.
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 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.
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.
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.
