As per the request of several students I was asked to put up todays granola bar "creation" in Science.

Granola bar recipe 
1 cup packed dates
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup almond butter
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
optional: mini chocolate chips... we added them. 

1. Process dates in a food processor until small bits remain.
2. Place oats, and dates in a large mixing bowl - set aside.
3. Warm honey and almond butter in a small saucepan over low heat. ( I used a crockpot in school.) Stir and pour over at mixture and then mix, breaking up the dates to disperse throughout.
4. Once thoroughly mixed, transfer to a baking dish.
5. Press down firmly until uniformly flattened.
7. Cover with parchment or plastic wrap. Let firm up in refrigerator for 15-20 minutes.
8. Slice into even bars.
