Holiday Spiced Nuts In A Bar
This recipe is based
However, they would be great any time of year.
For this recipe, you can use any kind of nuts or a combination of different verities. Larger seeds like sunflower seeds or pepitas also work well. I personally prefer to use more neutral-flavored nuts, like almonds, for these bars.
To avoid losing flavor buy whole spices and grate them yourself. Always store your spices in a dry dark space.
Also called crystallized ginger, candied ginger is ginger that has been peeled, chopped, and then cooked in simple syrup. It has a soft chewy texture like that of dried fruit and adds nice little pockets of ginger flavor to these bars.
Brown Rice Syrup
Brown rice syrup is a thick liquid sweetener, with a honey-like consistency, made from brown rice. You can find it at most health food stores or you can replace it with corn syrup.
Puffed Rice Cereal
The best known puffed rice is the brand name Rice Krispies cereal. However, there are many brands of puffed rice cereal and any of them will work just fine.
