Dessert in a Hurry: Chewy Cinnamon Raisin Puff Bars

I have made several attempts to develop a terrific recipe for a Kamut Puffs bar.  If you are not familiar with Kamut, it is a form of wheat (Click here for more information) with an interesting background.  Well, as interesting as a wheat’s background can get I guess.  Nonetheless, these puffs have a fantastic, chewy texture to them and they have made a great addition to my other bar recipes.  I decided it was time they had an opportunity to shine!  Below is my final Chewy Cinnamon Raisin Puff Bars Recipe.

Chewy Cinnamon Raisin Puff Bars

1/2 cup honey

1/4 cup crunchy almond butter

2 tsp vanilla extract

1.5 tsp ground cinnamon

1/2 cup raisins

2 cups kamut puffs cereal

1/3 cup millet puffs cereal

To begin, thoroughly mix the honey, almond butter, vanilla extract, and cinnamon in a medium-sized pan on very low heat.

Cinnamon, Honey, Almond Butter Mixture

When the wet mixture is well-blended, add in the kamut puffs, millet puffs, and raisins.  Stir until thoroughly coated.

Lightly grease a rectangular dish and evenly spread the puffs mixture.

Initially, the batch will be very “gooey”.  Freeze for approximately one hour and the texture becomes perfectly chewy.  I store my bars in the refrigerator.  I love the  nice cold, chewy texture.

As with all of my bar recipes, I cut my bars as I go (depending on my appetite!).  These are easy to separate and should not need pre-cutting.

…and they are delicious!

I do have to make one quick reference again to the “It’s All About Bees” honey.  It is the local honey I pick up at our nearby Whole Foods and Hy-Vee, but they also have an online store.

"It's All About Bees" Honey

This is the best honey I have ever tasted.  It has such a clean, pure taste.  If you can source local honey, I highly recommend doing so.   I will never use anything else!
