Amazingly simple and delicious, these work as an on-the-go breakfast bar or an accompaniment to afternoon tea—or even to balance a plate of holiday cookies.

  1. Preheat oven to 350˚. Line an 8x8-inch pan with foil or parchment paper. Place all ingredients in a food processor. Process until pieces are mixed well and dough sticks together. Press into pan. Bake for 15 minutes on the center oven rack. Cool before cutting into squares.
