Huckleberry Granola Bars

These chewy granola bars are a salty-sweet huckleberry treat! Whether you’re on a hike or just need an afternoon pick-me-up, we promise these nut and fruit bars are berry, berry tasty.

Can I use dried or fresh berries?

Absolutely! We used frozen huckleberries because that’s what we had available from last season’s harvest, but you can swap in an equal amount of any fresh or dried berries.

Do I need to use Honey?

You can use maple syrup instead, but we found the honey pairs better with the huckleberries. If you want to use granulated sugar instead, you’ll need to add a little more liquid to the mix to make sure it all holds together.

What do Huckleberries Taste Like?

They vary by region – the term “huckleberry” can refer to several different species of wild berries. Generally speaking, they’re akin to blueberries, with just a tinge of tartness. You can get them here!

Equipment

  • 1 bowl
  • 1 loaf or baking pan [we used an 8x8, but a standard loaf pan will make thicker bars!)

Materials

  • 1 tsp ground plantain seeds [or ground flax seeds or chia seeds]
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp nut butter
  • 1 tbsp neutral oil
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup wild seeds & nuts [we used black walnuts, pepitas, sunflower seeds, and flax seeds]
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup frozen huckleberries
  • flakey salt, optional

Instructions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and line a loaf or baking pan with parchment paper. In a small bowl, combine 2 tbsp water with plantain (or chia) seeds, and let sit for 10 minutes. When the mixture has become viscous, add the rest of the wet ingredients: honey, nut butter, neutral oil, and brown sugar. Stir until smooth.
  • 2. In a large bowl, mix oats, nuts & seeds, salt, and frozen huckleberries. Add the wet ingredients into the dry and mix until thoroughly combined. Firmly press the mixture into the prepared baking pan and sprinkle with flakey salt.
  • 3. Bake for 30 minutes, turning halfway through, until the edges have taken on a gentle tint of color. Remove from the oven and cool completely before removing from the pan and slicing.

  1. JB here – I developed this recipe because I’m a bit of a granola addict haha. If you make this one, I highly recommend using a loaf pan instead of the 8×8 pictured here, it will produce a thicker bar that holds together better. Let me know what you think of this one (especially if you make it!)
