Maple-Cranberry Granola Bars
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
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.
