Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cup quick-cooking oats (see notes)
  • 1 1/3 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/2 cup diced, dried apricots
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt or to taste (use less if your almond butter is salted)
  • 1 cup creamy, unsalted almond butter
  • 1/2 cup + 1 tbsp. honey
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Line a 8×8 inch square pan with either parchment paper or plastic wrap for easy clean-up and serving.
  2. In a large mixing bowl stir together almonds, oats, apricots, cinnamon and salt until just combined.
  3. In a separate bowl (or stand mixer), combine the almond butter, honey and vanilla extract until creamy and smooth.
  4. Pour the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients. Use a big spoon to mix together until the two are evenly combined. If the mixture seems wet, add in more oats or alternatively, if the mixture seems too dry, add more almond butter and/or honey.
  5. Transfer the mixture to the prepared square pan and gently press the mixture into the pan. I use an offset spatula to get it even.
  6. Place the pan in the freezer for 15-30 minutes or the refrigerator for at least one hour, preferably longer. You want them to be firm enough to slice!
  7. Remove from pan, slice into 8-12 bars and enjoy! To store, wrap in plastic wrap or parchment paper and store in the fridge or freezer (as long as they are well-wrapped)

Notes

Quick-Cooking oats do best here as the regular ones produce too thick of a texture. If you only have old-fashioned oats, pulse them a few times in a blender or food processor to break down.If you live near a Trader Joe’s- I’ve found they have the best price on both sliced almonds, almond butter and dried apricots!I think honey works best here but for a vegan version, feel free to substitute maple syrup instead.
