Ingredients
Cinnamon-Raisin Breakfast Bars
  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup chopped almonds (toasted)
  • 1 cup puffed brown rice cereal
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 pound pitted dates (halved)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup creamy almond butter
  • cooking spray (to coat pan)
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate (melted, to drizzle)
Directions
  • Prepare an 8-inch square pan by spraying the sides with cooking spray and lining with parchment, allowing it to hang over.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine rolled oats, chopped almonds, brown rice cereal, raisins, cinnamon and salt.
  • In a medium sauce pan, add the dates and water.   Simmer over medium-low heat until the dates begin to break down, about 5-7 minutes.   Stir in the almond butter until combined.  Remove from heat and pour over the dry ingredients.  Stir to fully combine and then pour into the prepared pan.
  • Press down with a spatula or your hands to create an even layer.  Drizzle with dark chocolate. Refrigerate until bars have set (about 30 minutes).
  • Keep chilled until ready to serve. Cut into 12 bars and serve.

    Tip
    - Bars can be cut and wrapped in wax paper to be individually stored.
