Hello my almond butter loving friends. If you're new to HEAB, you may like to subscribe to my RSS feed or receive my posts via email. Thanks for reading!

A couple of months ago, a good friend and fellow mom sent me the recipe for her chewy granola bars telling me that non-refrigerated, non-crumbly snacks are key. I get it now and made my own version today.

Because doesn’t every mom present their 10-month old with snacks tied in raffia ribbon?

First, my friend’s version, and my version below.  I am a recipe tweaker but wanted to include the original so that you could play around with it yourself. Enjoy!

Summer loved them! I did too, but they weren’t very sweet. My friend’s original recipe called for 1/2 cup honey + 2 TBSP maple syrup instead of the fruit paste. So, you could go that route if you prefer something sweeter. I put a few of the bars in the fridge and wrapped up the rest to keep in the freezer. They’ll be great to take with us when we’re out and about. Many thanks to Leslie for the recipe!
