Serving Size: 1 Bar

1 1/2 c Rolled oats
1/4 c Oat bran
1/4 c Finely chopped almonds
1/2 ts Ground cinnamon
2 tb Vegetable oil plus
1 ts Vegetable oil
1/3 c Honey
1/2 ts Vanilla extract
1/4 ts Almond extract
1/4 cup dried fruit (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 F. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick spray. Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. Combine remaining ingredients and add to dry mixture. Mix until all ingredients are moistened. Press mixture into a rectangular shape 7 inches wide and nine inches long. (Wet hands or use one hand and a damp spoon.) Bake about 12 minutes. Remove from oven and cut into 16 bars using a sharp knife. Separate bars slightly and return to oven for 3 to 5 minutes more. The browner the bottom of the bars, the crisper they will be when cool. The edges will crumble slightly when cut – set aside for a snack. Remove to a wire rack to cool.
