Prep 20 minutes, Bake 20 minutes, Serves 20
1/3 c. honey
2 large eggs (you can use powdered)
1/2 tsp salt
1 c. old fashioned rolled oats
1/2 c. instant nonfat dry milk
1/2 c. each: shelled unsalted pumpkin seeds
unsweetened shredded coconut
ground flax seed
dried apricots, chopped
1/4 c. whole wheat flour
Preheat the oven to 350*F. Line a 9" square baking pan with nonstick foil. Beat honey, eggs and salt with a fork in a small bowl until blended. Put the rest of the ingredients in a food processor and pulse until finely chopped. Add the honey mixture to the dry ingredients and pulse until mixture is slightly moistened. Press dough into baking pan until in is uniformly even. Bake until center is set, and edges are lightly browned. Let cool 10 minutes. Using foil, transfer the bar from pan to cutting board. Cut into 20 1 1/2" bars. Let cool completely, peel off foil.
1 bar is: 118 calories, 5 gm total fat, 2 gm sat fat, 16 gm total carb, 10 gm total sugar, 2 gm fiber, 4 gm protein My notes: I did not use the foil, but lightly greased the pan with butter. I did not use a food processor, but just chopped the dried apricots with a knife. I used raisins because I didn't have any dried cherries. I stirred everything together with a spoon. I preheated the oven, and the baking time was 20 minutes.
I really love this bar. I will have a couple with some yogurt for breakfast. Yummy! Give it a try and let me know how you like it.
