Chewy Oatmeal Breakfast Bars To-Go
1 cup almond butter
½ cup maple syrup
½ cup almond milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
2½ cups rolled oats
1 cup brown rice cereal
½ cup slivered almonds
½ cup dried cranberries
½ cup dark chocolate, chopped
¼ cup dark chocolate, melted

2.Combine wet ingredients together in a large bowl, then add in all the remaining dry ingredients.
3.Add mixture into a 8x8 baking pan lined with greased parchment paper. Firmly press down mixture until it is one smooth layer. (if you grease the spatula as well it will prevent the mixture from sticking to it!)

5.Drizzle top with melted dark chocolate. Chill for 30 minutes, or until dark chocolate is solid.
6.Cut into 8 equal pieces. Wrap each bar in parchment paper or foil. Store in the freezer for up to 3 months or in the refrigerator up to 1 week.
7.Enjoy your breakfast bar to-go!
