Cherry Almond Granola Bars

Chewy, slightly crispy and homemade... these Cherry Almond Granola Bars are perfect for breakfast or a healthy snack. Our base is made with whole grain oats, crispy brown rice, almond butter and dried cherries, making these extremely versatile. Add in any combo of nuts, dried fruits (sweetened or unsweetened), choose gluten free oats, a little chocolate, and adjust your bake time to make your bars chewy or crunchy. Our favorite combo includes Cherry Bay Orchards cherries!
