Recipe created by the Food Network on behalf of Almond Board of California. 




3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats

2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

1/2 cup unsalted roasted almonds, chopped

1/2 cup sweetened shredded coconut, toasted


Nonstick cooking spray, for the pan

1/2 cup packed light brown sugar

6 tablespoons unsalted butter

1/4 cup honey

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate chips

1/2 cup crushed pretzels



For the base: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

  • Toss the oats with the butter on a rimmed baking sheet and spread in a single layer.
  • Bake until toasted. Let cool completely, then transfer to a large bowl.
  • Bring in a bowl of unsalted, roasted almonds and chop.
  • Stir in the almonds and coconut with the oats.

For the bars: Line a baking pan with foil. Coat the foil with cooking spray.

  • Combine the sugar, butter, honey, vanilla and salt in a saucepan. Boil for 30 seconds, then pour over the oat/almond mixture and stir.
  • Let cool slightly, then stir in the chocolate chips and pretzels.
  • Pour the mixture into the prepared pan & press firmly with a rubber spatula to spread in an even layer.
  • Let the bars stand at room temp until completely cool and firm enough to slice - about 1 to 3 hours. 
  • Lift out of the pan using the foil overhang and cut into 20 individual bars.
  • Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days.
