Nutty Oats Bar

Oatmeal cookies are a proverbial favorite with both kids and adults. This sweet and buttery flavored Oatmeal Bar recipe is loaded with oats, which produces a crisp and chewy bar that you can also fill with chocolate chips (white or dark chocolate), dried fruits, and/or chopped nuts. 

I have used Almonds in my recipe. And so here goes the recipe .......

Nutty Oats Bar

Ingredients :

Soft Butter / Margarine - 150 gm
Brown Sugar - 150 gm
Bitter Almond Essence - 6-8 drops
Eggs - 2
Oats - 200 gm
Powdered Almonds - 150 gm
Backing Powder - 1 t.sp
Grated Lemon Zest - 1 tb.sp

Method :
In the bowl of your electric mixer (or with a hand mixer), cream the butter and sugar until creamy and smooth (about 2 - 3 minutes). Add the Almond Essence. Add the eggs one by one. And beat to combine.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the Oats , Almond Powder, Baking powder, Lemon Zest. Add 3/4th of this mixture to the creamed mixture and beat until incorporated. Add the rest of the Oats mixture and incorporate it with your hands. Cover the dough with a foil and refigerate it for about an hour or over night.

Spread the dough on the lining sheet and back at 180° C for about 12 - 15 minutes.

After it is done, remove it out and cut it with knife when it is hot. Let it cool.

Nutty Oats Bars are ready. Preserve them in an air-tight box.
