3/4 cup smooth natural almond butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cups liquid honey
4 cups plain granola (see recipe)
1 1/2 cup unsalted roasted pepitas (punpkin seeds)
1 cup roasted mixed nuts, chopped
1/2 cup dried cranberries
Preheat oven to 325°F. Mist 15- x 10-inch baking sheet with cooking spray; line with parchment paper, leaving overhang.
In medium pot, heat almond butter and salt over medium heat until almond butter is melted. Let cool slightly. Stir in honey until smooth.
In large bowl, combine granola, pepitas, nuts and cranberries; stir in almond butter mixture until coated.
Scrape into prepared pan; cover with parchment paper. Using rolling pin, press granola mixture firmly to compact evenly. Remove top sheet of parchment paper. Bake until edges are golden, 15 to 18 minutes. Let cool in pan until firm.
Lift out onto cutting board; cut into bars.
Layer the cooled bars between parchment paper in an airtight container. Store at room temperature for up to two weeks, or freeze for up to two months and thaw at room temperature for 20 minutes before serving.
