Laura Loves… Nut Butter Granola Bars from Bon Appétit

You’ll see from our latest challenge—where we restyled our most embarrassing drawers—that my drawers were the duo of deep freezers that sit beneath my side-by-side refrigerators. Once I took everything out, it was clear that we are overflowing with nuts! Raw pistachios, raw cashews, raw pepitos, raw almonds… we overindex on that Trader Joe’s aisle. Before I could organize, it was crucial to use up some of our vast supply. Which led my daughter, Emmie, and me to the Nut Butter Granola Bars in the August 2020 issue of Bon Appétit. Delicious and easy to pull off. This recipe is useful for using up a lot of nuts, and it’s the perfect snack for any late-summer outdoor adventures. It’s probably healthy too, so win-win-win!
