Almond Special K Bars

Don't tell peanut butter, but I have a new nut butter love: almond butter. My favorite variety is roasted and salted, and includes chunks of almonds and toasted flaxseeds. It's more flavorful and crunchy than most peanut butters, and I like to think that I'm getting some heart-healthy benefits along with all the calories slathered on my morning toast.

Since I'm never content to leave well enough alone, I decided to use my favorite almond butter in these Almond Special K Bars, and was pleasantly surprised at the results. The chewy base has a nice almond flavor, and the toasted nuts on top of the chocolate boost the almond taste. You can substitute other nut butters in place of the almond butter, or try adding a handful of chopped nuts to the cereal mixture to boost the nut flavor.
