  1. Serves:12 bars
  2. Time: Prep: 10 minutes Total time: 30 minutes

INGREDIENTS

  • ¾ cup almond butter (or other nut/seed butter of choice)
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 ½ cups crispy rice cereal
  • ½ cup freeze dried berries, roughly chopped (optional)
  • ¼ cup Great Lakes Mixed Berry Collagen Hydrolysate

DIRECTIONS

  • Prepare an 8 or 9 inch square baking dish by lining with parchment paper and leaving a short overhang over the edges.
  • Add the almond butter and maple syrup to a small pot and heat over medium low heat. Stir often and cook until it starts to bubble slightly, about 2-3 minutes. The mixture should be smooth, slightly thick, and turn a slight golden brown.
  • Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla and sea salt, set aside.
  • In a large bowl mix together the rice cereal, dried berries if using, and Great Lakes Mixed Berry Collagen Hydrolysate.
  • Carefully pour the almond butter mixture over the rice cereal and, using a rubber spatula, stir gently to coat.
  • Once thoroughly mixed, pour the cereal mixture into the prepared dish and spread out into an even layer.
  • Press the mixture down firmly into the dish by either using the heel of your palm or by placing another piece of parchment paper over the top and pressing down firmly all over.
  • The more packed down, the better. Press in additional berries pieces into the top if desired.
  • Let cool on a wire rack for at least 20 minutes before slicing.
