A sweet, chewy, no bake granola bar made with almond butter, maple syrup and almonds.
Serves: 12 Bars
Ingredients
  • 1 cup dried figs, packed
  • ¼ cup slivered almonds
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • ¼ cup almond butter
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1¼ cups Vanilla Macaroon Granola (I used Nature Box, but any kind of granola you like will work)
  • ¼ cup shredded coconut, unsweetened
  • ¼ cup mini chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Line an 8 x 8 baking pan with parchment paper. Spray with cooking spray; set a side.
  2. In a food processor add dried figs and process until a thick, sticky consistency. Add fig mixture to a large bowl, add maple syrup, almond butter and vanilla extract (if almond butter is not drippy, microwave for a few seconds). Mix until incorporated. Add slivered almonds, granola and coconut and mix well. Mix in chocolate chips and pour into prepared baking pan. With a back of a spoon or your hands, sprayed with cooking spray, spread the granola and press down until packed in the pan.
  3. Place granola bars in the refrigerator to harden a bit, but please note these bars are pretty soft. Cut into bars and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
