  • 2 cups rolled oats 160 g
  • 1 ½ cups rice krispies 50 g
  • ½ cup chopped almonds 65 g
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ cup almond butter 130 g
  • ½ cup honey 118 mL, can sub maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract 5 mL
  • 1 large bar dark chocolate 200 g, or dairy-free alternative
  • ½ cup trail mix 35 g, or a mix of ¼ cup seeds of choice + ¼ cup dried fruit of choice


  • In a large bowl, combine rice krispies, oats, almonds, and salt.
  • In a microwave safe bowl, combine almond butter and honey, then microwave for 30 seconds, or until hot and pourable. Mix vanilla into almond butter mixture.
  • Gently combine hot almond butter mix with the dry oat mix.
  • Line a 9x13 inch dish with parchment paper and spoon your granola mixture in. Press firmly so that the granola is really compact (I like to use the bottom of a glass for pressing).
  • Pop granola in the freezer for 30 minutes to firm up, then cut it into 9 to 12 bars.
  • Melt chocolate (either using a double boiler or in the microwave) and transfer to a shallow dish. Gently dip one side of each bar into the chocolate, using a spoon to evenly coat it if needed.
  • While the chocolate-coated side is still warm and melted, sprinkle on the trail mix.
  • Put the bars back in the freezer for about 10 minutes to firm up completely, then enjoy!


Store bars in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
