Cherry Almond Granola Bars (1 of 1)

Yum! This nobake Cherry Almond Granola Bar is perfect for warmer weather! I have always wanted to make my own granola bars and finally took the opportunity this week to do so. I am now addicted and may never buy my bars again:) The almond butter and honey sticks the granola bar together and the dried cherries, chopped almonds and oats are a perfect flavor combination that is not too sweet. Enjoy this treat anytime of the day.

Yield 12 bars
Ingredients
1 tablespoon unsalted butter (880030, 36/1#)
3 cups quick oats (991518, 50#)
1 1/2 cups almonds, coarsely chopped (CWFN035, 5#)
1 cup dried cherries (994005, 10#)
3 tablespoons brown sugar (992005, 50#, Golden Barrel)
1/3 cup honey (991621, 6/3#)
1 1/2 cups almond butter (991630, 30#, Fisher)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (991796, 6/1QT, McCormick)

Method
Line a 9-by-13-inch baking pan with parchment paper, leaving an overhang on both sides.

Melt the butter in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add the oats and toast until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes.

In a large bowl, combine the oats with the remaining ingredients and mix well to combine. (This can be done by hand, but it’s especially quick in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment.)

Press the oat mixture evenly into the prepared pan. Pop the pan into the refrigerator or freezer to let the mixture set for 5 to 10 minutes. Cut into 12 evenly sized bars and serve. The bars will keep in an airtight container or wrapped in plastic for up to five days.
