Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Lightly oil a 9-inch square baking dish.

2. Combine the almond meal, salt, brown rice syrup, and butter substitute in a small saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 3 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and whisk in the almond extract. Transfer to a mixing bowl.

3. Whisk the flour and baking powder into the syrup mixture and stir until a spreadable batter forms. Fold in the almonds.

4. Spread evenly in the prepared pan and bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool completely in the pan before slicing into 1 1/2 3-inch bars.
