Almond-Honey Power Bar

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!!!!! "

Very tasty and easy to modify

My finished bars were delicious, but I did make a few changes based on other reviews and what I had on hand. I eliminated the sugar, used natural chunky peanut butter, Kashi honey puffs, and agave instead of honey. I had no sesame seeds but added a tablespoon of chia seeds and ground flax seeds. To make the one cup of fruit I used some dried mixed fruits, craisins, and raisins. I did bake them for 8 mins to firm them up though they're still a bit crumbly. Next time I might add a little more of the nut butter as a binder. This is a great base recipe to amend as needed.

easy, delicious
Not really a bar

This was fine, but not enough "sauce" to keep the bars in form.
Going to use as granola, but will be on the lookout for something that hopefully will keep it's shape more.

tasty, adapt with different dried fruits

I used peanut butter, 1 C dried cranberries, pecans, and skipped the sugar. These are so good! Mine didn't stay in bar form, but crumbly granola is fine. I will definitely make these again.

easy to make
Good Bye, Cliff Bars

We eat a lot of energy bars in our house, always looking for something to throw in a pack that has dense nutritional value. These are by far the best I have found. I followed the recipe exactly, except for cutting the turbinado sugar in half. My husband, who is a fan of the sugary pre-packaged versions, is now a convert.

Chock full of goodness
Feel good about eating these!

So easy, so delicious! I used dried tart cherries and dried apricots, added pumpkin seeds and used agave syrup instead of honey. I also baked mine about 8 minutes just to help firm up bc they were very soft. Such a great recipe to make your own! Yes a little pricey but more than one batch (I easily got 12 bars not 8 in one batch) and that probably averages out. Plus there is something to be said about knowing what my kids are eating.

Easy and tasty
