Appetizers & Snacks
1/3 cup Mandelin Classic Natural Roasted Almond Butter
1/4 cup agave nectar
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 cups puffed brown rice
1/2 cup puffed millet
1 cup Mandelin Blanched Slivered Almonds, toasted
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup dried cranberries or blueberries
1/4 cup chocolate chips
Generously grease an 8-inch square baking pan or line with foil.
In a small saucepan on the stove, combine almond butter, agave nectar, brown sugar, butter and salt over medium-high heat. When they have melted and combined, pour into a large bowl. Add puffed brown rice, millet, almonds, raisins, cranberries and chocolate chips. Stir the mixture together. The chocolate chips will melt slightly.
Pour the mixture into the baking pan and press down, using waxed paper to help compact the ingredients evenly. Cover and refrigerate the bars for at least one hour.
