Spiced Oatmeal Almond Brownies

They turned out really well. I constructed a pan out of tin foil again 1. because I needed it and 2. for shits and giggles. I did a much better job this time, being only the second time.

The brownies are complicated, I like that. The almonds on top are toasted and crunchy, the inside of the brownie is soft and chewy from being a brownie and also the oatmeal. The first flavor is that of chocolate from the bite through the chew, then the heady spices reign in the late chew through swallow and thereafter. The flavor seems ever changing yet doesn't tire me.

I used this recipe as the start:

and modified it by adding the spices from the Spiced Oat Bran cookies. I'll list my modified recipe below.
