Chewy Oat & Nut Granola Bars

2 cups rolled oats
1 cup quick-cooking oats
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 cup raw almonds
1-1.5 Tbsp olive or canola oil
1/3 cup pure maple syrup
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup vanilla-flavored almond milk
1/4 cup shredded coconut
Non-stick cooking spray

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Put the rolled oats in blender or food processor until they become powdery like flour. Mix "oat flour" with dry ingredients (except coconut) in a bowl.

Add all wet ingredients to the dry mixture and stir until well combined.

Spray a small baking dish (about 5 inches x 12 inches) with non-stick cooking spray. Add mixture to the dish, pressing it down with a spatula. Sprinkle coconut on top.
Before baking, cut the whole sheet into 12 bars. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Let cool, cut again, and store in an air-tight container for up to one week.
