2/3cupsalted buttermelted (or use unsalted and add 3/8 tsp )
12ozsemi-sweet chocolate chips or dark or semi-sweet chocolate
1/2cupsliced almondstoasted and lightly crushed***
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 15x10x1 inch pan with nonstick foil.
Arrange whole graham crackers in a single layer in prepared pan leaving no gaps.
Combine oats, sugars, and flour in a large bowl. Stir in melted butter, egg, and vanilla until well combined; spoon over graham crackers and spread evenly to edges of pan to cover graham crackers.
Bake on center rack for 20-25 minutes or until oat mixture bubbles and is browned on top. Remove from oven and sprinkle with chocolate pieces. Return to oven 1-2 minutes.
Spread melted chocolate over top to cover. Sprinkle with almonds. Cool in pan on a wire rack. To set chocolate, chill briefly. Grasp foil and lift from pan. Place on a large cutting board and cut into squares with a chef’s knife. These are pretty solid bars, so you may do more “breaking” than “cutting” but you should still be able to make squares.
