Ingredients


1 cup Almond butter (or peanut)
3/4 cup Honey (or maple syrup)
2 medium egg Egg
1 tbsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Vanilla extract, pure
1/2 cup Cranberries, dried
1/2 cup Dried cherries (dried fruit of choice)
1/4 cup Flaxseeds
1/2 cup hulled Hemp seeds, shelled
3/4 cup Pumpkin seeds (pepitas)
1 cup Quinoa, uncooked
2 cup Rolled oats, dry

Instructions


  1. Preheat oven to 325° F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and lightly grease.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the almond butter, honey, eggs, cinnamon and vanilla. Stir well. 
  3. Add the dried cranberries, dried cherries, flax seeds, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, uncooked quinoa, and rolled oats. Mix until everything is evenly distributed and all the dry ingredients have been moistened.
  4. Pour the granola bar mixture onto the greased paper and press evenly across the pan. Using the back of a large metal spoon may help. Really press and pack the mix into the corners of the pan and press down well as you smooth the back of the spoon across the surface until it is even, smooth and solid.
  5. Bake for 20-25 minutes until the edges and underside are deep golden brown (you can lift it by a corner of the paper to check).
  6. Allow the bars to cool completely in the pan before cutting. Cut into 30 bars. Refrigerate leftovers for up to a week or freeze, individually wrapped in plastic, for up to a month.
