NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
  • Gluten-free cooking spray
  • 1 cup chopped dried apples
  • 1 cup chopped raw walnuts
  • 1 cup chopped raw almonds
  • 1/2 cup sliced blanched almonds
  • 1/4 cup flaxseed meal
  • 1/4 cup millet puffs cereal
  • 2 tablespoons raw hemp seeds
  • 1 tablespoon raw organic rice protein powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup brown rice syrup
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Grease an 8-by-8-inch baking pan with gluten-free cooking spray. Line the pan with an overhanging piece of parchment paper to easily remove the bars.

  • Place the apples, walnuts, chopped and sliced almonds, flaxseed meal, puffs cereal, hemp seeds, protein powder, cinnamon, salt, rice syrup and maple syrup in a large bowl. Stir to combine and evenly coat. Transfer the apple mixture to the prepared pan and, using a greased piece of parchment paper, press down firmly to spread evenly. Bake until just firm, about 12 minutes. Let cool completely on a rack.

  • Reduce the oven temperature to 250 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and place a wire rack on top. Remove the apple bar from the pan and cut evenly into 12 bars. Place, gooey-side up, on the wire rack. Bake until almost dry to the touch, about 15 minutes. Let cool completely on a rack.
