Almond-Honey Power Bar

Almond-Honey Power Bar
This Recipe Is:

WebMD Recipe from EatingWell.com

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.

Ingredients
Prep: 30 | Total Time: 60
  • 1 cup
    old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup
    slivered almonds
  • 1/4 cup
    sunflower seeds
  • 1 tablespoon
    flaxseeds, preferably golden
  • 1 tablespoon
    sesame seeds
  • 1 cup
    unsweetened whole-grain puffed cereal
  • 1/3 cup
    currants
  • 1/3 cup
    dried apricots, chopped
  • 1/3 cup
    golden raisins, chopped
  • 1/4 cup
    creamy almond butter
  • 1/4 cup
    turbinado sugar
  • 1/4 cup
    honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon
    vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon
    salt
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat an 8-inch-square pan with cooking spray.
  2. Spread oats, almonds, sunflower seeds, flaxseeds and sesame seeds on a large, rimmed baking sheet. Bake until the oats are lightly toasted and the nuts are fragrant, shaking the pan halfway through, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl. Add cereal, currants, apricots and raisins; toss to combine.
  3. Combine almond butter, sugar, honey, vanilla and salt in a small saucepan. Heat over medium-low, stirring frequently, until the mixture bubbles lightly, 2 to 5 minutes.
  4. Immediately pour the almond butter mixture over the dry ingredients and mix with a spoon or spatula until no dry spots remain. Transfer to the prepared pan. Lightly coat your hands with cooking spray and press the mixture down firmly to make an even layer (wait until the mixture cools slightly if necessary). Refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes; cut into 8 bars.
