Ingredients

1 cup regular oats, toasted
1/3 cup light-colored corn syrup
1 tablespoon canola oil
2 tablespoons butter
1/3 cup sugar
1 large egg
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup chopped blanched almonds, toasted

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 400°.

2. Combine the first 3 ingredients in a medium bowl. Melt butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Cook 2 minutes or until butter begins to brown (do not burn). Pour into oat mixture; stir well.

3. Place sugar and egg in a medium bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until light and fluffy (about 2 minutes). Beat in vanilla.

4. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt, stirring with a whisk. Stir flour mixture into egg mixture. Stir egg mixture into oat mixture. Add almonds; stir well to combine.

5. Drop dough by heaping teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto 2 baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Bake at 400° for 4 minutes or until golden. Cool on pans 2 minutes. Transfer parchment to cooling rack; cool completely.
