Recipe from ‘Nuts’ by Avner Laskin
Take these bars with you on your next hike or camping trip, and you'll wish you'd made more.
Serves 4


• 1/2 cup honey
• 1 teaspoon cinnamon
• 2 cups oats
• 1/2 cup whole almonds
• 1/2 cup whole walnuts
• 1/4 cup dried cranberries
• 1/4 cup raisins
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Heat a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the honey and cinnamon, and cook until the honey begins to bubble. Add the oats, almonds, and walnuts, and mix well.

2. Cook for 3 minutes.

3. Remove from the heat, and add the cranberries, raisins, and vanilla, and mix well.

4. Pour the mixture into a deep baking dish lined with baking paper.

5. Cover the mixture with baking paper and press a heavy object (like a wine bottle) on top to tightly pack the mixture in the pan.

6. Transfer to the freezer for at least 2 hours. It's best to prepare this snack a day before serving, leaving it in the freezer for the whole day.

7. Remove the granola from the freezer, and use a sharp knife to cut 1-inch by 3-inch bars.

8. Serve immediately, or store in an airtight container away from any moisture for up to 1 week.
