Ingredients

Instructions

  • Spray a 5 Quart Slow Cooker ** (READ NOTES) with cooking spray and cut a piece of parchment to just fit in the bottom of it. I just traced my slow cooker on a large piece of parchment, cut it out and stuck it in. Spray the parchment with cooking spray, and press it down to adhere it to the slow cooker. ***
  • In a large, microwave safe bowl, combine the almond butter and maple syrup and melt until the almond butter is creamy, about 30 seconds.
  • Whisk together the almond butter and maple syrup. Then, whisk in the almond milk, cinnamon and salt. Whisk until the milk is well incorporated with the almond butter.
  • Whisk in the eggs until well combined, then stir in all remaining ingredients thoroughly.
  • Pour the mixture into the prepared slow cooker and cook on LOW heat until the top of the bars just appear set, about 3 1/2-4 hours****. Turn the slow cooker off and let the bars cool inside COMPLETELY, with the lid off.
  • Run a knife around the outside of the bars and remove the bowl from the slow cooker. 
  • Once cool, cut into bars, drizzle with additional almond butter, and DEVOUR!

Notes

*if you can’t find toasted almonds, just dry toast them in a 400 degree oven for about 5-10 minutes, until lightly golden brown.
**I have tried this in a  slighter bigger slow cooker with doubling the recipe and it did not work well. So, I am lead the believe this recipe will also not work well in a smaller cooker as the bars will be too thick and they cook weird.
***Don’t skip this step. It makes the bars so much easier to get out.
Store the bars in an air tight container in the refrigerator.
****Cooking time is based on a 5 squart slow cooker.
