Chewy Snack Bars are outrageously healthy and tasty. The recipe fills a 9 x 13 pan so you will have a lot to share or enjoy yourself.
These are featuring puffed amaranth a gluten-free source of energy, protein, fiber, minerals, vitamins and more. Did you know amaranth is actually a seed so these are grain-free as well. If that weren't enough healthy natural almonds are roasted to bring out their flavor, oil and refined sugar are omitted and healthy dried fruits and nut butter (or seed butter) are used instead. These are so yummy, Gerald and I have been thoroughly enjoying them all week long and now you can too. It is fun to make a big batch on the weekend and then you can have them throughout the week. It's also a perfect treat to put in your loved one's lunch or your own lunch. You're going to love how easy this recipe is. If you don't have amaranth you can use puffed rice, puffed quinoa or another puffed cereal. Enjoy!
