It’s easy to get tired of the basic granola bars we buy all the time. As delish as they are, it’s hard not to get sick of the same style bars + common flavors. We try our best to find the healthiest + yummiest bars we can take on-the-go, but sometimes we can’t avoid things that are high in sugar + sodium. Because we love anything + everything *Fall* — why not incorporate some of those amazing fall flavors into our granola bars? Maple Syrup is often only associated with the big sugary pancakes + waffles, but using the right kind of syrup + in moderation can be a tasty way to make delicious treats!
1/2 cup light Maple Syrup
1/4 cup Honey
1/3 cup organic light Brown Sugar
2 cups Oats
1.5 cup crushed Almonds
1/4 cup dried Cranberries
1/4 cup Sunflower Seeds
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Nutmeg
1] In a medium size bowl, combine almonds, honey + brown sugar + stir until almonds are thickly coated.
2] Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper + spread the mixture until it’s about ¼ inch- ½ inch thick.
3] In a separate bowl, combine oats, maple syrup, cranberries, sunflower seeds, nutmeg + cinnamon.
4] Layer on top of, but not mixed with, the almond mixture. Bake at 350° for about 15 minutes + let cool.
5] Cut into rectangles [or any shape your heart desires :)] about 3-4 inches long + store the leftover in the fridge.
