All Aldi // Almond Butter Oat Bars

>> Friday, February 8, 2019

So, you guys all know my issues with Aldi lately. It's not them, really, it's me. I figured rather than whine about it, I'd start trying to cook more from scratch again -- using all Aldi ingredients. This particular snack is highly adaptable. You can use most any nut butter you like and add in whatever sounds good. It's also kid and toddler approved, hence the llama in my photo.


What you'll need . . .

  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1-1/2 cups crispy rice cereal
  • 1/3 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Salt, for sprinkling

Method . . .

  1. Spritz a 9x13 inch pan lightly with oil. Set aside.
  2. Melt the almond butter, honey, and coconut oil together on medium heat. Whisk it until smooth and take off heat once incorporated, being careful not to burn the almond butter.
  3. Using a spoon or spatula, stir in the oats, cereal, and cranberries. You can also add chocolate chips (they'll melt), pepitas, or anything else that sounds good to you!
  4. Spread into your prepared pan, sprinkle with a little salt, and refrigerate until firm. Cut into 16 bars.
  5. Alternatively, you can roll loose "dough" into balls for energy chunks.
