Almond Granola Bars
Wheat Free Recipe
Almond Granola Bars with rolled oats and plenty of almond flavor thanks to chopped almonds and almond extract. Cinnamon spices and honey sweetens.
1-1/2 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup oat bran
1/4 cup finely chopped almonds
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons vegetable oil plus 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
1/3 cup honey
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
Preheat oven to 350-degrees. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick spray.
Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. Combine remaining ingredients and add to dry mixture. Mix until all ingredients are moistened.
Press mixture into a rectangular shape 7 inches wide and nine inches long. (Wet hands or use one hand and a damp spoon.)
Bake about 12 minutes. Remove from oven and cut into 16 bars using a sharp knife. Separate bars slightly and return to oven for 3 to 5 minutes more. The browner the bottom of the bars, the crisper they will be when cool.
The edges will crumble slightly when cut; set aside for a snack. Remove to a wire rack to cool.
Yield: 16 Servings
