Currant Almond Bars

Day three of my wisdom teeth extraction and even though I cannot eat solid foods, I still wanted to make a breakfast bar for my husband and little guy. These could also be used as a healthy snack too!

​I typically buy a dried fruit crispy bar from our local health food store. However they are $3.95 a piece, so I thought why not try to save some money and make them myself. After looking at the ingredients on their package and substituting several items and this what I came up with! Don’t tell them that I think my bars are better!

Currant Almond Bars
Serves 10
A blend of sesame seeds, almonds, currants and nut butter make this a perfect pre-workout snack! This can also work as an on-the-go breakfast bar!
