I hope you guys had a fantastic weekend!

This week I have so many things going on. Both of my younger sisters are graduating later this week so it’s going to be super hectic. It’s Friday and Saturday, which means we’re going to have to buy two of everything, like bouquets and leis. And wake up super early to go the venue because parking is a pain in the city, especially when you’re in the downtown area.

And you know that graduations always last forever. Especially when there are a ton of people graduating and each name is called individually. A class of a couple hundred graduates, speeches, and award recognition could take hours. And I’d be starving.

So that’s where these cranberry almond snack bars come in handy.

I’m totally wrapping these cranberry almond snack bars up in parchment paper and placing them in Ziploc bags to keep me from starving while I wait for our celebratory lunch.

These snack bars are easy to bring with and they taste soo amazing. Slightly sweet with a nutty taste and a hint of coconut, these bars will keep you satisfied until your next meal.

Preheat the oven to 300F. Line a 9×9 inch baking pan with parchment paper so that it hangs over the side. This will make it easier to lift the snack bars from the baking pan.

In a medium sized mixing bowl, add almond meal, honey, and coconut butter. Stir with a spatula until a paste forms.

Add chopped almonds and dried cranberries to the mixing bowl.

Mix all the ingredients together until they are well incorporated.

Transfer the mixture over to the baking pan and use a spatula to flatten it evenly against the bottom of the pan.

Bake the snack bars for about 20 minutes.

Remove the baking pan from the oven and allow it to cool for an hour. Then place the baking pan in the fridge to cool for an additional hour. That way the bars will stick together and become firm.

Take the baking pan out of the fridge and cut into 10-12 bars.

Individually wrap the bars with parchment paper or plastic wrap and store them in an air tight container in the fridge. I like storing these bars in the fridge so that they retain their firmness. When they’re stored at room temperature, the honey tends to melt a little and become sticky.

Take them with you as a breakfast or as a snack.

Enjoy these cranberry almond snack bars!
