Okay, I’m finally out of rice krispies, and now I want more to make this recipe again! Go figure. Chocolate Almond Granola Bars turned out great. Plus, no heating up the kitchen, which is always a bonus in the summer.
The chocolate was melted in the microwave and the almond butter is naturally drippy. I used agave and it was a great substitution. For my dried fruit I used the mixed berries I get from Trader Joe’s for my breakfast bars. There are strawberries, cherries, cranberries and other wonderful things in there. I wasn’t about to go out and buy some cocoa krispies since I had regular and it didn’t hurt anybody, except maybe the diehard chocoholic. And for them I’d just add an extra sprinkling of chocolate chips. I didn’t bother with a drizzle, or trying very hard to compact them as I had no idea if they would stick together. They did so next time I might make them a bit more solid.
