Almond-Honey Power Bar

January/February 2010

Your rating: None Average: 4.2 (367 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 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.

These are delicious. I am allergic to nuts so I used 1/2 cup of sumfower seeds and sunflower seed butter (Sunbutter) in place of the almond butter. The next time I make these I will try to get pumpkin seeds to replace the almonds.

Instead of protien powder why not use shelled hemp seeds? Very high in protien 5 T = 20 g . For those w/nut allergies this product can be used - still get a nutty flavor

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! How easy...have to say a little expensive buying all the ingredients - but now I have them and can make this again. I doubled the recipe and used peanut butter instead o almond butter. Peanut butter will add more fat, but almond butter is so expensive (can you tell I am on a budget?) Make these, don't think about it...just do it!
