Cranberry Almond breakfast bars

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
There is something about baked goods that just sounds delicious and sinful. I have always been a fan of scones, muffins and bakery treats for breakfast. However, my tummy is not that happy with them. Trying to be careful of what I eat for breakfast, I have been experimenting with different types of “bakes”. This is a gluten-soy-lactose free breakfast bar that turned out really great !
Ingredients:
¾ cup of oatbran
½ cup creamy almond butter
½ cup liquid egg whites
1 cup of almond milk
1 tsp of baking soda
1tsp of baking powder
2/3 cup shredded coconut (sweetened)
1 cup dried cranberries

Method:
Preheat oven to 375F
In a 2 cup measuring cup, measure out almond butter, eggs and milk-add to a mixing bowl and whisk thoroughly.

Next add the oat bran, baking soda, baking powder and mix well.

Stir in the cranberries and coconut at the very end.
Pour batter into a greased 9”x9” baking pan.
Bake for 20 minutes.

Serve warm with a drizzle of honey, agave or maple syrup—it would also taste good with yogurt and fresh berries !
