Almond-Honey Power Bar

January/February 2010

Your rating: None Average: 4.3 (334 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.

"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 hate granola bars and energy bars. I've never eaten a dried apricot. but I LOVE THESE BARS!!! Really. I remember reading about this in my Eating Well magazine and thought I would give it a try. My husband bikes a lot so I thought these would be great to take along as a snack for the carbs. This was the easiest recipe to put together and I could find most of the items in my neighborhood store.

My substitutions were minimal: Dried cranberries instead of currants, 3/4 tsp of almond extract instead of vanilla extract. Pumpkin seeds instead of sunflower seeds.

I can't wait for the next birthday event at the office. I'm going to make a couple of batches of these!

Awesome recipe! I followed it exactly and weren't too sweet. I think if you're using sweetened peanut butter that could be the problem everyone's indiating so you might leave out sugar as suggested. I used all natural almond butter which is not sweet and came out perfectly!

Too save $$ I found about every item in the bulk section of my local specialty store. That way I could buy the exact portions needed and not have left overs. Next time going to it with try dark chocolate chips and cranberries!

I love this recipe! Imagine all the different substitutes a person can use...have already. The only change I made was to use Agave instead of honey. Next time I'll be using half almond butter and half peanut butter with a hint of orange zest and will also substitute Wheylow gold (a natural brown sugar substitute) for the Turbinado sugar.
