I was recently turned onto these bars by a friend and I am forever grateful. I have been looking some sort of granola bar I could make at home that would be firm enough to hold up on it’s own, but not hard and didn’t require too much sweetener. These use a ton of of nuts and seeds, which we usually have an abundance of, so this recipe is a cinch to throw together. These bars, using agave, win on all accounts. They are nutty, chewy, and crunchy and make a great high protein snack that can easily subdue any candy/baked good craving you might be having. I’ve been making double batches of this recipe and Jim and I gobble them up throughout the week.
Oat/nut/seed mixture after toasting. We aren’t coconut fans, so I left it out and used some slivered almonds instead. I also add a little dusting of cinnamon.
Pressed down into the pan after combining with PB/agave mixture. These are so good– make them now!
