I could not stop eating these bars. I ate them day and night for almost a week, my husband only had one. Best yet there is no time in the oven. Almond butter, butter and honey are melted together in a saucepan and the remaining ingredients are added. They will need some time in the fridge.
The raisins and rolled oats contributed to the texture of the bar making them a little chewy. Here you could sub out cranberries, dried cherries, blueberries…pretty much any dried fruit your heart fancies. Have fun with these bars, I did……Now off to the gym!
Recipe is from Martha Stewart Living
1 cup almond butter
1/3 cup honey
1 stick butter (unsalted)
2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup almonds (roasted and rough chopped)
3/4 cup raisins
6 ounces bittersweet chocolate (rough chopped)
1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
Prepare an 8 inch square pan by coating pan with cooking spray. Line with parchment paper leaving a few inches of overhang on all sides.
Begin by melting almond butter, honey and butter in a heavy bottomed saucepan over medium heat. Stir frequently, about 5 to 7 minutes until mixture is completely combined.
Remove from heat and add remaining ingredients, stirring until chocolate has melted and well combined.
Spoon into prepared pan and refrigerate until chocolate hardens. I waited about 6 hours. Cut into bars.
Makes about 2 dozen.
Cheri Savory Spoon
Mysavoryspoon was first started in 2010 as a way to journal recipes that I had collected from cookbooks, magazines, family and friends. Most everything was savory, using legumes and whole grains. Along the way I discovered a love for baking. Now a couple times a month you might see some type of sweet pie or treat.
