Granola bars with Almond Butter

I thought I would try something different then my normal trail bars for a change.  Which normally consists of using peanut butter and dried fruit or berries.  This one is a simple recipe, with a lot less ingredients.

  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup powdered milk
  • 1 cup dried fruit (I used dried blueberries)
  • 2/3 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup almond butter

What to do:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the oats, berries, and the dry milk.
  3. In a sauce pan, combine the honey and almond butter, and heat until smooth and liquidy
  4. Pour the honey-mixture over the oat mixture, and stir until all ingredients are moist.
  5. The put into the oven for 20 minutes and bake.

The dough is very dry compared to what I am used to for granola bars.  It was easy to press into the pan and was not sticky at all.  I added some mini M&M’s to the mix so I could get my chocolate fix also.

Kinda looks like a giant cookie right out of the oven.
