Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    1 Tbsp. walnut oil, plus some for pan
    1 1/4 cups spelt flakes
    1/2 dried cherries
    1/4 cup ground flax seeds
    1/4 cup pecans, coarsely chopped
    2 Tbsp. pistachios, coarsely chopped
    1/4 tsp. salt
    1/2 cup honey
    1/4 creamy peanut butter
    1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract

Directions

Preheat oven to 325. Brush an 8x8 inch baking dish with oil. Line bottom and two sides with parchment paper, leaving a 2 inch overhang on each side. Brush paper with oil. In a bowl, combine spelt, cherries, flaxseed, pecans, pistachios, and salt. Set aside.

In a small saucepan, combine honey, peanut butter, oil, and vanilla. Cook over medium heat until melted. Add to dry ingredients and stir to combine. Transfer mixture to prepared pan; smooth top. Bake until golden and edges pull away from sides of pan, 20-25 minutes. Cool completely in pan. Using the paper overhang, lift bars out of pan. On a cutting board, cut into 8 pieces using a serrated knife. Store in airtight container, separating pieces with wax or parchment paper, for one week.
