Granola Bars with Apricots, Oats and Almonds
Just looking at these bars has our stomach’s growling. At a time of year when sugar consumption is at an all-time high, this healthier recipe is a welcome treat that can be served morning, noon, or night. Simply combine roasted oats, almonds, and pepitas with chopped apricots and salt, stir in a mixture of almond butter and maple syrup, then smooth out and chill for up to three days. Don’t skip the step of toasting the oats, almonds, and pepitas. It takes off the raw edge and adds an extra layer of nutty flavor. However, feel free to replace the almond butter with peanut butter, or sunflower butter.
