Chewy Granola Bars Experiment

I’ve never made granola bars before… so this was a real experiment! Nice tart cranberries, roasted toasted almonds, and creamy peanut butter made these granola bars come together… literally and figuratively!

You’ll need:

  • 1 cup soft dried cranberries
  • 1 cup almonds
  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar

How to:

Soak cranberries in water… my thought is that it will soften them and then they will become sticky, thus helping to glue together the bars.

Toast the oats and almonds for about 15 min, not too brown

When that’s done toasting, the cranberries should be softer…

Melt the peanut butter, honey, and brown sugar on low heat (super low) and keep warm.

Take the oats and almonds out of the oven, and roughly chop the almonds.

Next, smash the cranberries with a masher, and then mix the cranberries, oats, almonds, and honey mixture together.

Press firmly into a pan to mold and let sit for 30 min.
