Cranberry, almond and chocolate chewy bars

What could be better than a soft bar when it comes to snack time! Unfortunately, we often find unpleasant surprises in commercial bars. I offer you here a recipe made up of healthy, natural, and delicious ingredients. Plus, it's quick to make and keeps in the freezer. So take the opportunity to prepare one or two recipes this weekend, just to have some on hand during your next hunger pang!

 

 

 

Cranberry, almond and chocolate chewy bars

Preparation: 10 minutes 
Cooking: 20 minutes 
Refrigeration: 1 hour

 

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 300F. Line an 8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper. Leave the paper sticking out to make it easier to remove and cut the bars.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the maple syrup, vanilla, ground almonds, salt and hazelnut butter with a wooden spoon. Stir in the cranberries, almonds, and chocolate. Mix until well blended.
  3. Transfer the dough to the prepared pan and press firmly with your hands. The mixture should be really well pressed, go for it!
  4. Place in the oven and cook for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and place the pan on a wire rack. Let cool completely, about 1 hour. Transfer the dish to the refrigerator and let cool for an additional hour, this will make it easier to cut the bars and keep them firmer. 
  5. Remove bars from pan using protruding parchment paper. On a cutting board, slice into bars and wrap in parchment paper or simply place in an airtight dish. 
  6. Store in the refrigerator in an airtight dish for a week or in the freezer for a month. 

Note: Place 1/4 cup natural organic almonds in a food processor. With small pulses, grind until you obtain a granular powder. Do not run the food processor continuously; you might end up with almond butter. 

 

Bon appétit!
