Ingredients

  1. 3 1/2 cups (875 mL) Compliments Puffed Rice
  2. 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) Compliments Five Fruit Medley
  3. 1/2 cup (125 mL) Compliments Natural Sliced Almonds

  8. 1 tbsp (15 mL) unsalted butter

Method

  1. In a large bowl, stir together puffed rice, fruit medley, almonds and cinnamon; set aside.
  2. In a shallow wide-bottomed saucepan over medium heat, combine almond butter, honey, flaxseed and butter; stir constantly until smooth, 3 to 5 min.
  3. Pour honey mixture over puffed rice mixture; stir to coat evenly. Using hands, press into a 9-in. (23 cm) square baking pan. Wrap loosely with plastic wrap and freeze for 30 min.
  4. Cut into 15 bars. Wrap individually in plastic wrap; refrigerate for up to 2 days, or place individually wrapped bars in resealable bags and freeze for up to 4 weeks.
Tip:
Before pressing the mixture into the pan, wet your hands to prevent sticking.
