Smoked Almond Granola Bars

Keeping the sodium level in this recipe for savory snack bars low is dependent on choosing unsalted smoked almonds. If you can’t find them, choose plain, unsalted almonds instead and be sure to include the liquid smoke, which can be found in the spice section of most grocery stores.

Ingredients

  • Dry Ingredients:

    • 1½ cups unsalted smoked almonds, chopped
    • ½ cup pumpkin seeds
    • ¼ cup millet
    • 1½ Tbsp. chia seeds
    • ½ tsp. smoked paprika
    • ½ tsp. garlic powder
    • ¼ tsp. salt

    Wet Ingredients:

    • ¼ cup honey
    • ½ tsp. liquid smoke, optional

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Line an 8″x8″ baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. Combine the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl.
  3. Microwave the honey for 30 seconds to make it easy to pour. Stir in the liquid smoke, if using. Stir into dry mixture until evenly coated.
  4. Press mixture evenly into the baking pan. Bake until lightly toasted (18-20 minutes).
  5. Cool the bars in the pan until they hold together in a solid block (20-30 minutes).
  6. Use the parchment paper to lift the bars to a cutting board. Spray a sharp chef’s knife with cooking spray and slice into 10 bars.

Vegan Cheesy Chips

For all the benefits of the plant-based diet, and especially for those on a vegetarian diet, there is still one very important consideration, which is the lack of B12.
