raw sesame seeds
raw sunflower seeds
1 1/2 cups
unsweetened, dried cranberries
unsweetened, dried blueberries
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!
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!
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!
These were good! Easier than I expected.
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!!
