Recipe Ingredients for Nutty Power Bars

1/2 cup slivered almonds
1 cup chopped pecans
2 cups rolled oats
1 cup banana chips, chopped (unsweetened)
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cardamom
1/4 cup honey
3/4 cup brown rice syrup
1/2 cup chunky peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla extract

Recipe Directions for Nutty Power Bars

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Spread the almonds and pecans on a cookie sheet and toast them in the oven for 6-8 minutes, or until they start to brown a bit. Remove from oven and let cool.

  2. In the meantime, line an 8x8 dish with parchment paper or foil and set aside. Now, mix the oats, banana chips, cinnamon, cardamom and salt in a big bowl. Add the nuts once they've cooled.

  3. In a small saucepan, heat the agave nectar, brown rice syrup, peanut butter and vanilla extract over medium heat, stirring to avoid burning. Once the syrups come to a light boil, continue to cook for an additional 3-5 minutes until the syrup begins to thicken, then pour it over the oats and nuts. Mix everything together so that the syrup evenly coats everything in the bowl.

  4. While its warm, pour the contents of the bowl into your prepared dish.** Using a rubber spatula, pat everything down so it's nice and compacted. Cover with more parchment paper and press down again. Let cool to room temperature. You can also put them in the fridge for a bit since this will make cutting easier.

  5. Cut into 2 inch squares.

  6. **I put parchment paper down in the dish first. Make sure to spray the parchment paper before putting the nuts in.
