Chewy Almond Butter Bars
I've been making the Chewy Almond Butter Bars from Ancient Grains for Modern Meals over and over and over. They are so good. In fact, I made it a bunch of times and never took a picture - that's the reason I haven't posted about it yet. Oats, puffed kamut, sunflower seeds, almonds, sesame seeds, flax seeds, apricots, currants, and golden raisins, held together with a glue of almond butter and honey, with just a hint of vanilla and salt in the mix. The recipe calls for additional sugar, but I've been leaving it out as the notes suggest to lighten it up. I can't imagine it with more sweetness - it's perfect just the way it is. I'm on the verge of not needing the recipe for this one anymore. It's quickly become a favorite. I'm looking forward to some variations - chocolate and peanut butter, a hazelnut version, an apricot/pistachio combo... the possibilities are endless.
