Aronia Berry Granola Bars

ARONIA BERRY GRANOLA BARS



Last April we included this recipe in our newsletter, and we are still loving it! Especially with school starting back up these are the perfect on the go snack that are packed full with nutrition. Even better these tasty treats don't take a whole lot of time to whip up! 

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup Honey
  • 1 Cup Dried Aronia berries
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup raw, unsalted sunflower seeds
  • 2/3 cup roasted, unsalted almonds
  • 1 cup dried, pitted dates
Instructions:
  • Preheat oven to 325 Degrees F.
  • Whisk together the honey, cinnamon, & vanilla in a larger bowl. Stir in the oats and mix until evenly coated.
  • Toast sunflower seeds in a dry pan on medium heat until golden brown, about 3 minutes. Meanwhile, pulse the almonds and dates in a food processor until coarsely chopped. 
  • Add the toasted sunflower seeds and chopped almonds and dates to the oat mixture; mix well. The color of the mixture should be more of a purple hue.
  • Press the mixture into an 8X8 inch baking pan lined with parchment paper and bake for 25 minutes. Remove from the oven, let cool, then place in the freezer until firm. After about an hour, cut into bars and enjoy!
Note: Store in airtight container up to 1 week.
