When I think of the movie Finding Nemo I can’t help but laugh about the scene with the sharks. “Fish are our friends,” they remind themselves. But they are hungry! It is kind of like the way my daughter comes home from school – SO hungry. She wants sweets but I always say no because I want her to eat something healthy instead. That is where these granola bars come in. They are so scrumptious and healthy and just a little bit sweet. They are the perfect after school pick-me-up for even the hungriest shark in your family! This recipe is part of Disney’s Magic of Healthy Living Campaign, a program that partners with parents to help them in their quest to raise healthy children.
Shark Bait Granola Bars
21/2 cups rolled oats
1 cup pepitas
½ cup dried cranberries
2/3 cup almond butter
1/4 cup agave nectar
1 large pinch sea salt
1. In a large bowl mix the oats, pepitas, and dried cranberries. Set aside.
2. In a smaller bowl stir together the almond butter, agave, and sea salt. Then, using a wooden spoon. Stir this into to the oat mixture until everything is evenly combined.
3. Line the bottom and sides of a 9×9 baking dish with parchment paper. Press the oat mixture into it and flatten the top with a spatula. Cover the top with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 6 hours. Then cut with a sharp knife. Keep refrigerated.
