A few years ago, my kids really liked Nutrigrain bars. I hunted for a recipe that would approximate the store-bought bars, but that I could guarantee weren’t full of preservatives. I make these about once every 6 weeks or so and they get eaten very quickly in our household!
- 1 cup butter (softened for 30 seconds in microwave)
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/2 cup all purpose flour and 1/2 cup almond meal/flour (if you don’t have almond meal flour, you can just use plain flour.)
- 1 1/2 cup of oats
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
