Ingredients

    2 cups rolled oats
    1 cup quick-cooking oats
    1/2 tsp cinnamon
    1/8 tsp salt
    1/4 cup raw almonds
    1-1.5 Tbsp olive or canola oil
    1/3 cup pure maple syrup
    1/4 cup honey
    1/4 cup vanilla-flavored almond milk
    1/4 cup shredded coconut
    Non-stick cooking spray

Directions

Preheat oven or toaster oven to 350 degrees F.

Process 2 cups rolled oats in blender or food processor until they become flour-like. Mix "oat flour" with dry ingredients (except coconut) in a bowl.

Add all wet ingredients to the dry mixture and stir until well combined.

Spray a small baking dish (about 5 inches x 12 inches, or similar) with non-stick cooking spray. Add mixture to the dish, pressing it down with a spatula. Sprinkle coconut on top.

With a knife, cut the whole sheet into 12 bars. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Let cool, cut again, and store in an air-tight container for up to one week.

    Very good! Easy to make. I added sunflower seeds, cut up the almonds and added dark chocolate chips. Didn't have the vanilla milk, used non fat milk with tsp. of vanilla. Also didn't have the right pan size so ended up using a bread pan. Definately a keeper! - 10/31/08

    I now make these every 2 weeks. This week I am trying 2 tbsp almond butter and 1 tbsp natural pb instead of the oil )2:1 - 2x the nut butters vs. the amount of oil). I added 0.25 c pumpkin seeds and 0.25 semi sweet choc chips. I look forward to my treat of eating these after my workouts! - 7/14/08

    I made my own almond milk and substituted dried fruit mix because I don't like coconut. Wonderful bar! I shared with my DSIL (a fitness nut) and she begged the recipe! Even my 13 year old son likes them... MAGIC! - 1/29/09

    These were simply delicious. I didn't have any coconut or almond milk, added 1/8 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup sunflower seeds, 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds and 1/2 cup chocolate chips, 1% milk with 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1 oz raisins and 5 prunes. Should have left out brown sugar-but overall FANTASTIC! - 7/26/08

    Living in a small community they would stare at me if i ask for almond milk. I used skim milk and did just fine. Maybe less flavor but no problem. - 2/22/09
