Almond, Apricot and Chili Bar



24 oz. Almonds, whole, natural, oven roasted

9 oz. Oats, thick rolled, dry

12 oz. Apricot, dried

1 oz. Flax Seeds, meal, ground

8 oz. Sunflower Seeds, toasted

2 oz. Bran, wheat

9 oz. Pumpkin kernels, dried

2 tsp. Chilies, Guajillo, dried, ground

2 g Salt, sea

10 oz. Honey

17 oz. Agave Nectar

Water, as needed



1) In a stand mixer, combine almonds, oats, apricots, flax seeds, sunflower seeds, bran, pumpkin seeds, chilies and salt.

2) In a medium, heavy-bottomed sauce pan add the honey, agave nectar and yam bean. Bring to a boil over medium high heat.

3) Brush sides with water to prevent crystallization of syrup.

4) Cook syrup to 240ºF, stirring constantly.

5) Once the proper temperature has been reached, add syrup to the almond, oat and spice mixture and paddle until the syrup has coated the dry mixture.

6) On a quarter sheet tray, lined with parchment, evenly lay out the mix.

7) Cool at room temperature.

8) Once cool, cut into 1 ¼" x 1 ½" bars.

9) Store airtight at room temperature until ready to use.

Hi, I am not familiar with "yam bean puree". What is it? Can regular yam puree be substituted?

Haven't tried the recipe but the ingredients are not common ingredients that people have on hand. Any other recipes that contain common ingredients for home preparation.
