Bold Sriracha Protein Bars
1½ cups Blue Diamond Bold Sriracha almonds
1 cup sunflower seeds
¾ cup pepitas cup hemp seeds
¼ cup sesame seeds
²?3 cup dried cranberries
¹?3 cup brown rice syrup
2 tablespoons agave nectar
Line an 8 x 8 baking dish with parchment paper. Leave extra on the sides to use when lifting out of baking dish. Lightly coat parchment with oil. In a large bowl mix together the first five ingredients. Mix the brown rice syrup and agave together in a small saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally. Allow to boil two to three minutes. Pour over nut and seed mixture and mix quickly to evenly coat. Syrup hardens fast. Transfer to baking dish and spread in an even layer using a spatula (or your hand, with a piece of plastic wrap covered over mixture). Allow to cool completely, about 1 hour outside fridge or 30 to 45 minutes in the fridge. Lift out of dish using parchment paper and cut bars in desired sizes.
