How to Make Almond Toffee Bars

These cookie bars are effortless to make with only a few simple ingredients. Line an 8 x 8-inch square cake pan with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, combine oatmeal, graham cracker crumbs, salt, and melted butter. Press the oatmeal mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan.

Sprinkle almond toffee bits, chocolate chips, and sliced almonds over top of the crust. Drizzle sweetened condensed milk over the toffee mixture. Bake in a preheated oven until the top is golden brown and the edges are bubbly. Cool in the pan on a wire rack to room temperature. Chill the bars in the refrigerator for at least four hours before cutting them into bars with a sharp knife.
