I agree with anasdad I toasted the the oats and almonds on my second batch. found it easier to smash them onto wax paper, freeze and cut into bars also.

I put mine in the toaster oven for a bit... They still came out excellent! This was a great project to do with my daughter!

Thanks for posting it and including so many photos!

Excellent, except for the ones that got a little burned! I used regular sized chocolate chips and minis. The minis came out better!

They never touched a heat source... that's just the angle and lighting.
