These chewy granola bars lean towards some elegant flavours with the help of fresh orange zest, cranberries, pistachios and cacao nibs.
You can use either regular unsalted butter or almond butter. I normally use organic honey, but for a vegan option, you can replace with equal amounts of palm sugar.
