Ingredients

  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup Almond Butter no sugar added
  • 1/3 cup Honey or maple syrup if vegan
  • 1/3 cup freeze-dried strawberries crushed into small pieces
  • 1/3 cup semi-sweet mini chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup sliced almonds raw and unsalted
  • 1.5 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp Sea Salt

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350℉.
  • Spread oats and almonds in an even layer onto a baking sheet pan — bake for ~10 minutes, or until lightly toasted, aromatic, and lightly golden browned. Set Aside.
  • While that toasts, combine in a medium mixing bowl honey: almond butter, vanilla, and salt — mix until smooth and well-incorporated.
  • Next, stir in the toasted oats and almonds until well-combined.
  • Mix in chocolate chips and freeze-dried strawberries until incorporated.
  • Line an 8x8 baking pan with parchment paper — add the mixture and spread it out into an even and smooth layer.
  • Chill in the freezer for ~45-60 minutes, or until quite set/firm.
  • Once set, remove from freezer and from the 8x8 pan — cut into a 3x3 grid, yielding 9 equally sized granola squares.
  • Serve, store in the fridge or freezer, and enjoy!
  • Snack serving suggestion: enjoy with a side of fresh vegetables, fruit, nuts, or cheese!
