Preheat oven to 350°F.

Transfer to a large bowl.

Stir in puffed cereal, all the dried fruits until well mixed.

Add almond butter, sugar, honey, vanilla and salt in a small saucepan.

Heat over medium-low, stirring constantly, until the mixture bubbles lightly, 3 to 5 minutes.

Right away pour the almond butter mixture over the dry ingredients and mix with a wooden spoon until all the dried spots are moistened.

Arrange the mixture into the prepared square pan.

Coat your hands lightly with cooking spray and press the mixture down firmly to make an even layer.

Refrigerate until firm, at least half an hour.

Cut into bars; bigger or small, square or rectangular depend on your own interest.

You're nutritional info is wrong if this is supposed to make 8 bars. It should be 218.6 calories, 10.6 total fat (2 sat) 5.7 fiber, 7.3 protein.

Love the photo! :) I'm always looking for recipes with less refined sugar, and this one looks really good--so I printed it, and will make it when we have all of the ingredients. Yum!
