Ingredients

  • 3/4 Cups brown rice syrup
  • 3/4 Cups cashew or almond butter
  • 2 Tablespoons vegan butter spread, preferably Earth Balance
  • 7 Cups brown rice cereal, preferably organic
  • 3/4 Cups dried cranberries
  • 3/4 Cups dried strawberries
  • 1/2 Cup pumpkin or sunflower seeds (optional)
  • 1 Teaspoon cinnamon

Directions

In a medium-sized saucepan, heat the syrup, almond butter, and butter spread over low heat until well incorporated. In a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients together. Combine the wet and dry mixture and stir to coat well.

Using wet hands, spread the cereal mixture in a 9-inch square baking pan. Press down firmly, ensuring evenness. Place the bars in the freezer for about 1 hour. Cut the mixture into bars. Store in the refrigerator.

Cranberry Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Cranberry Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
