almond butter chocolate pretzel granola bars

i found this recipe at how sweet it is.
it is really good.
i made a few changes, 
like almond butter in place of peanut butter,
and kashi puffs in place of puffed rice.
plus, i always try to pare recipes down
to the simplest possible directions.
so, there ya go.
