  1. Preheat an oven to 275 degrees F (135 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9-inch square baking dish.
  2. Grind the almonds, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, and oats in a food processor until they resemble a coarse meal. Stir the ground mixture in a bowl with the cranberries, blueberries, maple syrup, and cinnamon until evenly combined. Moisten your hands with water and press the mixture into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until toasted, about 1 hour until toasted. Cool completely in the baking dish. Cut into 16 bars. Store in an airtight container at room temperature up to 1 week.

Overall pretty good. You must let them cool in the pan completely before cutting, and they will stay together.

I really wanted to like these because I've been looking for a good recipe for energy bars. However, I thought they were relatively tasteless. They aren't cheap to make either. Before I put them in the oven I tasted them and they just seemed very bland so I added a cup of unsweetened coconut hoping that would give them a little more flavor. Unfortunately, I just wasted the coconut along with the other ingredients.

They stay together pretty well compared to other homemade bars. I didn't have enough blueberries so I had to substitute with dried dates. I don't cared too much for the maple syrup taste so I might use honey next time.

This recipe has been a really great starting point for us to experiment with. From here we've changed what fruits are included, how much syrup to add, and other small changes too. It's great!

These were great! I substituted pumpkin seeds for the sesame and sunflower seeds, added honey, vanilla, wheat germ, flax seed and greek yogurt and baked them in mini muffin pan—they are great for breakfast with a smoothie—my 13 and 23 year old love them!

Easy to make and tasty. I needed to use up some 1/2 eaten bags of almonds, dried cranberries and blueberries. This worked great. I did add some walnuts to mine because I didn't have enough almonds. Will make again!

Really good bar, easy to make and very nutricious. Reminded me of the first packaged granola bars you could buy when they first came out when I was young, crunchy and maple tasting!!
