Bedtime Granola Bars and a cup of Harmony Tea Co’s Deep Sleep Signature Blend tea are the perfect combo for a deep, relaxing sleep. Sweet Dreams!
2/3 cup almonds, whole
6 ounce cashews
1 1/2 cup oats, dry
1/3 cup flaxseed, ground
1/3 cup cherries, dried
1/3 cup raisins of blueberries, seedless
1 cup peanut butter, all-natural
1/4 cup honey
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
Line an 8×8-inch baking pan with parchment paper, leaving extra on the sides to pull the bars out of the pan. For thinner granola bars, use a 13×9-inch baking dish.
Roughly chop the almonds and cashews, or pulse the nuts gently in a food processor or blender until medium-small pieces. Place the chopped nuts in a large bowl with the old fashioned oats, ground flax, dried blueberries, and raisins. Mix together.
In a separate microwave safe bowl, melt the peanut butter. Stir in the honey and sea salt. Allow the mixture to cool slightly. Pour the peanut butter mixture in the bowl with the dry ingredients. Fold ingredients together with a spatula until everything is coated.
Press mixture into the parchment lined baking dish, packing it tightly. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Pull the granola slab out of the pan with the edges of the parchment paper. Cut into a minimum of 12 bars. These granola bars are best stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. Optionally store in an airtight container at room temperature up to 10 days.
