Grandma’s Christmas Bars

Christmas bar recipe

I’ve been enjoying looking through all the recipes that Grandma has collected through the years. Here’s a Christmas bar recipe that I found on a 1952 newspaper clipping. I’ve made a few adjustments and noted them below. They were yummy! 🙂

  • Place honey in a medium to large saucepan. Bring to a light boil over high heat.
  • When honey comes to a boil, stir in almond butter.
  • Remove from heat and stir in salt and vanilla.
  • Note: I used unsalted almond butter in this recipe. If your almond butter is salted, you may want to cut the salt amount in half.
  • Stir in remaining ingredients in order listed.
  • Press mixture into an oiled 8” x 8” pan.
  • Chill before cutting into bars.


If you need to follow a gluten-free diet, be sure your crispy rice cereal is specifically labeled gluten-free.

  2. 5 stars
    This was absolutely delicious!!! Reminded me of little debbie star crunch cookies I had as a kid! I subbed in the honey and carob chips like you suggested. I didn’t have coconut or almonds on hand and they still turned out amazing. Thanks for another healthy and satisfying recipe. 🥰
