Ingredients

Granola Bars

  • 1 ½ cups old fashioned oats
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts
  • ½ cup chopped almonds (slivered)
  • 3 tbsp pumpkin seeds
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 3/4 cup almond butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • Pinch of salt
  • ½ tsp vanilla

Yerba Mate Glaze

  • 1-2 tbsp strong brewed Yerba Mate tea use twice the normal amount of tea you would normally use
  • ½ cup powdered sugar

Instructions

  • Line an 8x8” pan with parchment paper.
  • Toast oats for 8-10 minutes 350 degrees, or until just fragrant.
  • Melt honey and almond butter together in a saucepan over medium heat. Once the mixture starts bubbling slightly, remove from heat. Stir in the vanilla extract and a pinch of salt. Add in the oats, nuts and seeds; stir to combine well. The mixture may look dry at first but continue to press everything together with a wood spoon or spatula. Add a spoonful of almond butter if your mixture looks too dry.
  • Press the mixture firmly into the parchment lined pan (this is key to sticking together!). Chill in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
  • To make the Yerba Mate glaze, combine 1 Tablespoon of the tea with the powdered sugar, whisking until smooth. If the mixture looks too thick, add a bit more tea, little by little.
  • Cut into bars, then drizzle on the glaze (you may not need it all). Enjoy with a cup of Yerba Mate tea!
