Red Currant Almond Granola Bars
These bars taste not unlike pie, from both the toasty oats and almonds and the jammy currants. They're on the softer side of the granola bar spectrum, and provide a delicious boost of protein and good fats from the almonds and almond flour, fiber from the oats and vitamin C from the currants, with relatively little sugar, which is only present in the form of honey. Delicious with a cup of coffee or tea, they make a unique on-the-go breakfast but would not be out of place as part of an afternoon tea.
Note: Red currants are relatively rare and pricey, so you can use half currants, half raspberries if you like, just chunk up the raspberries a bit. If you can't find red currants at all, a mix of raspberries and blackberries (both roughly chopped) or wild blueberries would also be amazing.
