Ingredients

1 ½ cups rolled oats
¼ cup bran
¼ cup almonds
finely chopped
*
½ teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
cup honey
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon almond extract
*
2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Directions

Preheat oven to 350℉ (180℃). 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.

These almond granola bars were excellent, not sickly sweet, but just sweet enough to bind everything together. They were delicious and nutritious, great for breakfast, or snack when you need something to regain your energy. I did make a few changes, see the linked recipe below.

Keep them in an air-tight container or a zip-lock bag in the refrigerator for at least 1 week or in the freezer for up to 1 month.
