So I’m performing a juice & food cleanse at this time. I’m SUPER excited about it because as you may already know I freakin’ love doing them. It isn’t that I think they’re great in the moment, it’s that I really appreciate how I feel afterwards. The huge benefits? How obvious my skin appears, how much great rest I get and how differently I end up thinking about meals.

I’ll have improvements for you for the cleanse shortly; for the time being I’ve been looking at these pubs for the counter most of last night. I produced them last week for Tony because he’s all like I have to get a lean body for baseball period – this is as he continues to consume chocolate protected doughnuts for breakfast time. I think he could eat just about anything and still look good. No laughing matter.

Anyway these pubs are everything I’ve wanted to make for a long time. My granola bar obsession peaked when my pal Maegan and I journeyed around Kansas Town We had the most amazing coconut granola pub at Kaldi’s coffee and since then I am dying to make my own.

The wonderful part about granola bars is that you can fundamentally add anything to them that you’d like. This one is fairly simple. The bottom comprises of oats, honey along with a nut butter. The rest? Up to you! You can essentially sub any kind of nut for the cashews and whatever kind of dried fruit you’d like for the cranberries. Personally, I think cherries would be fabulous. Or if you want to come on delicious, add some mini chocolate chips. GOD THAT SOUNDS GOOD. EVERYTHING SOUNDS SO EXCELLENT.

Sorry about this caps. Did I point out I’m composing this late at night and dreaming about my usual midnight snack of peanut butter, banana and chocolate chips? Also, remember the juice/food cleanse. Forgive me for just about any spelling errors. I really like you.

And… I am hoping you love these bars! They are FILLING, nutritious and wholesome. If you make them be sure to label #ambitiouskitchen on Instagram so I can check ’em out. xoxo.

Prep time:

1 hour

Total time:

1 hour


3/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes

1 cup unsalted cashew halves

1 tablespoon chia seed products (optional)

1/2 cup dried cranberries, coarsely chopped

1/2 glass honey (brownish rice syrup if vegan)

1/2 cup unsalted creamy almond butter

2 teaspoons coconut oil


Series a 9-in . square pan with parchment paper. In a large dish combine oats, cashews, coconut, chia seeds and dried out cranberries.

Place medium saucepan over moderate low warmth and add honey, almond butter, coconut oil, salt, cinnamon, and vanilla; mix until warm and coconut oil is definitely melted with almond butter. Add moist ingredients to dried out ingredients and mix well to combine and layer the oat/cashew/coconut mix. Transfer blend to prepared pan and press solidly right down to pack bars firmly and ensure they stick together. The harder you press, the more they will stick together – therefore press them in extremely firmly!

Place skillet in fridge for 1-2 hours or until firm. If you want to speed up the procedure, place the pan in the refrigerator for ten minutes. Cut into 16 pubs. Bars will keep at area temperature for a week, or longer in the fridge. I love to individually wrap my pubs in plastic cover for get and go snack foods during the week – or maintain a few in my car for post workouts.

You can also bake these if you want crunchy pubs: Bake for 10-15 minutes or until firm then remove from range and keep at space temperature to cool. Don’t bake much longer or they will become very difficult.

Feel absolve to sub another nut instead of cashews and use any type of nut butter you’d like in place of the almond butter. These granola bars are very flexible! Try dried cherries or apricots instead of cranberries!

Hi Monique

If I’d replace the almond butter with peanut butter, will I have to replace the coconut flakes as well? Can peanut and coconut coexist within the same formula? What can you suggest?

I actually replaced the cranberries with raisins and can use less honey next time as the pubs were too nice for a snack or breakfast.

Extremely filling and delicious though.
