The Plate Lab of The Washington Post shares a recipe from the Mitsitam Native Foods Cafe at the National Museum of the American Indian.

Chef Jerome Grant created the granola bar after being inspired by a fellow chef from the Red Lake Nation in Minnesota. It's based on wild rice, quinoa and other grains.

For eaters who aren't up for making the bars at home, they can be purchased at Mitsitam in Washington, D.C.
