So I’m doing a juice & food cleanse at this time. I’m SUPER worked up about it because as you may already know I freakin’ love doing them. It isn’t that I believe they’re great in the moment, it’s just that I really like how Personally i think afterwards. The huge benefits? How obvious my skin appears, how much great rest I get and how in a different way I find yourself thinking about meals.
I’ll have updates for you around the cleanse quickly; in the meantime I’ve been staring at these pubs on the counter most of yesterday. I produced them the other day for Tony because he’s all like I need to get a lean body for baseball season – that is as he continues to eat chocolate protected doughnuts for breakfast time. I think he could consume just about anything and still appear good. No laughing matter.
Anyway these pubs are everything I’ve wished to make for a long time. My granola pub obsession peaked when my friend Maegan and I journeyed around Kansas Town We had probably the most incredible coconut granola club at Kaldi’s coffee and ever since then I’ve been dying to create my own.
The beautiful part about granola bars is that you can basically add anything to them that you’d like. This one is fairly simple. The base comprises of oats, honey and a nut butter. The rest? Up to you! You can essentially sub any kind of nut for the cashews and whatever kind of dried fruit you’d like for the cranberries. Personally, I believe cherries will be fantastic. Or if you wish to get real delicious, then add mini chocolate chips. GOD THAT Noises GOOD. EVERYTHING SOUNDS SO GOOD.
Sorry about this caps. Did I point out I’m writing this late at night and thinking about my usual midnight snack of peanut butter, banana and chocolate chips? Also, remember the juice/food cleanse. Forgive me for just about any spelling errors. I really like you.
And… I am hoping you like these bars! They are FILLING, nutritious and wholesome. In the event that you make them be sure to tag #ambitiouskitchen on Instagram so I can check ’em out. xoxo.
5.0 from 1 reviews
3/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1 cup unsalted cashew halves
1 tablespoon chia seed products (optional)
1/2 cup dried out cranberries, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup honey (brownish grain syrup if vegan)
1/2 cup unsalted creamy almond butter
2 teaspoons coconut oil
Line a 9-inch square pan with parchment paper. In a big bowl combine oats, cashews, coconut, chia seed products and dried out cranberries.
Place moderate saucepan over moderate low temperature and add honey, almond butter, coconut oil, salt, cinnamon, and vanilla; stir until warm and coconut oil can be melted with almond butter. Add damp ingredients to dried out ingredients and stir well to mix and layer the oat/cashew/coconut mixture. Transfer mixture to prepared pan and press securely right down to pack bars firmly and ensure they stick collectively. The harder you press, the more they will stay together – so press them in very firmly!
Place pan in fridge for 1-2 hours or until company. If you’d like to speed up the procedure, place the skillet in the freezer for ten minutes. Cut into 16 pubs. Bars could keep at room temperature for weekly, or longer within the fridge. I love to individually wrap my pubs in plastic wrap for grab and go snack foods through the week – or maintain a few in my own car for post exercises.
You can also bake these if you want crunchy bars: Bake for 10-15 minutes or until firm then remove from range and keep at room temperature to cool. Don’t bake longer or they will become very hard.
Feel free to sub another nut instead of cashews and make use of any type of nut butter you would like in place of the almond butter. These granola pubs are very versatile! Try dried out cherries or apricots instead of cranberries!

If I’d replace the almond butter with peanut butter, am i going to have to replace the coconut flakes aswell? Can peanut and coconut coexist in the same formula? what is pig feet made of can you suggest?
I actually replaced the cranberries with raisins and can use less honey the next time as the bars were too sugary for a treat or breakfast.
Extremely filling and mouth watering though.
