These “Trail Blazin’ Bars” Will Mellow Out Your Next Hike

Not to throw shade, but these Trail Blazin' Bars are by far the kindest bars we've ever met. Have you ever found yourself on a stroll through the Great Outdoors only to realize you need to refuel and chill out? These tasty cranberry, almond, and — most importantly — weed trail-mix bars are the answer to your happy-hungry adventurer prayers. Never before have you eaten something as hearty as it is heightening. By the time you reach your summit, you'll feel higher than ever before. As did the mango pops and macaroni and cheese we've already brought you, this recipe will teach you how to prepare a new kind of weed base to add to your treats. Be warned, though: The funny honey that these bars call for takes even longer to make than either infused coconut oil or cannabutter. That said, it'll be worth it in the end. These bars are so mystifyingly delicious, they make us feel like we're in our own, personal nature valley. Trail Blazin' Bars
