These delicious bars are a great way to beef up your lunchbox game!
In a large mixing bowl, combine the oats, cranberries, cocoa nibs and cinnamon. Stir well.
In a small pot, combine the oil, honey, vanilla extract and almond butter over medium heat. You want to warm this enough to combine the liquids well. But DO NOT BOIL! Stir constantly to avoid any simmering. This warmth is strictly to get everything to combine as well as to make it a bit more fluid for mixing with the oats.
Pour the nut butter into the mixing bowl and mix well to completely coat the oats.
Press mixture into an oiled or parchment lined baking dish. (Mine -pictured above- was 9 x 4 1/2)
Freeze for 2 hours.
Cut bars with a sharp knife and store in the freezer for up to 2 months, tightly wrapped so no air gets to them. Note that by the time lunch time comes around, these will no longer be frozen and will be perfect to eat. (These keep in the fridge for about a week.)
