Vegan Breakfast Bars Recipe
Prep time: 15 Mins
Cook time: Freeze:30 Mins
Yields: 15 Bars
A very easy to prepare vegan breakfast bar recipe, which does not involve baking.
  1. Stir together cereal, dried fruit, nuts and cinnamon (if using) in large bowl.
  2. Put syrup, almond butter and soy margarine (whichever you are using) in large, microwave-safe measuring cup.
  3. Microwave 1 and 1/2 minutes on high, or until hot and margarine has melted.
  4. Stir well, then pour over cereal mixture.
  5. Stir to coat.
  6. Dampen hands with cold water.
  7. Press cereal mixture firmly into 9x9 inch baking pan (I didn't have this, so I used 13x9 inch nonstick baking pan), re-wetting hands if necessary to keep mixture from sticking.
  8. Freeze 30 minutes. I covered the pan with plastic wrap before putting it in the freezer.
  9. Cut into 15 bars, and store in refrigerator up to 5 days.
My Notes:
  1. For toasting almonds, heat a frying pan on the stove and add the sliced almonds, toss it for a couple of seconds. Be careful not to burn the almonds.
  2. If you are not into organic stuff, you can find almond butter very cheap in Trader Joe's. The organic brand is also cheaper there when compared to the price in the regular grocery store. The grocery store near my house carries only Nature's Promise Organic Almond Butter which is $12, but the organic butter in Trader Joe's is only $8 and if you choose to buy the inorganic it's only $4.59. That's a considerable amount of savings for me. You can also make your own almond butter.
