I picked up dried cherries and cranberries (that I sweetened with apple juice) and slivered almonds from the bulk section of my grocery store and turned my usual trail mix into bar form. The cherries and cranberries act as a binder, removing the need to even turn on an oven, and the health factor was bumped up even more by adding some nutty Happy Hemp seeds. What’s better than a recipe that comes together in a snap?


  • 2 ½ cups unblanched slivered almonds
  • 1/3 cup flaxseed meal
  • 2/3 cup dried cherries
  • 1/3 cup dried cranberries
  • 2-3 tablespoon raw hemp seeds (optional)
