- Preheat oven to 325˚ and grease a square 8- or 9-inch baking pan.
- Mix all ingredients in a large bowl until the nut butter, brown rice syrup, and applesauce are fully combined.
- Press the mixture into the prepared baking pan in an even layer—it will be sticky! Bake for 25-30 minutes, until the top is matte and starting to brown.
- Cool completely on a rack, then cut into 16 bars, each approximately 2 inches square.
It is recommended that if you substitute honey for brown rice syrup, you refrigerate overnight before cutting.
Bars can be stored for up to 1 week in an airtight container at room temperature.
Makes: 16 bars, approximately 2 inches square.
