How to make Whole Wheat Almond Bars Recipe
To begin making the Whole Wheat Almond Squares Recipe, we will first preheat the oven to 180 C. Grease and flour a square baking pan. Keep this aside.
Next, pour in the whole wheat flour, ground almonds, cinnamon powder, cardamom powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt into a medium sized bowl and mix everything together. Once done, keep it aside.
Now in another large bowl or the bowl of the stand mixer add in the butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla essence. Blend all the ingredients together thoroughly until the mixture is light and fluffy.
Stir in the dry ingredients into this egg butter batter and beat until well combined. Now transfer the batter into the prepared cake pan. Sprinkle the roughly chopped almonds on the top to give the cake an added crunch.
Bake this for 45 to 55 minutes or until a tester inserted in the centre of the batter comes out clean. Once done, remove from the oven and set it aside.
Cool the cake completely before slicing them into squares, or else they might break up.
Serve the Whole Wheat Almond Squares as a tea time snack or even as a healthy snack for school kids.
