Almonds do double duty here -- silky almond butter helps hold the bars together, while chopped toasted almonds add just the right amount of crunch.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Coat an 8-inch square baking pan with cooking spray. Line with parchment, leaving 2 inches of overhang on 2 sides. Melt almond butter, honey, and butter in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring frequently, about 6 minutes. Remove from heat and add remaining ingredients, stirring until chocolate has melted and ingredients are well combined.

  • Pour mixture into prepared pan. Refrigerate until chocolate hardens, at least 3 hours and up to 1 day. Run a knife around edges, then use parchment to remove from pan and transfer to a cutting board. Cut into 24 bars, 3 across one side and 8 down other. Bars can be stored in refrigerator up to 3 days.

I absolutely LOVE this recipe. I haven't stopped making it since I first saw and tried the recipe. And everyone who has tasted it, first of all couldn't believe it was homemade, then they asked for the recipe. My husband isn't a big chocolate fan, so when I make it I usually make one batch with the chocolate, and one without, but then, I find he eats the chocolate ones, too. I really enjoy these energy bars, and they're something I can eat and feel good about what I'm putting in my body.

I made these last night but substituted dried cranberries for the raisins since I don't like raisins in anything. They came out great and I cut them into 3/4"-1" squares so that they were bite-sized and brought them into work. They have receied many compliments and are going quickly. Will definitely be making these again! Thanks.

I have a question. The bars only keep three days in the fridge? That's a lot of bars for one person to eat in three days. Any suggestions?
