I make these weekly and eat them for breakfast - They are fantastic! To the recipe given here, I also add: another 1/2 c. oats, another 1/4 c. cranberries (for a total of 1/2 c.) (or try dried blueberries or dried cherries or apricots, etc), 1/4 c. sunflower seeds, 1/4 c. pecan pieces chopped small (try your favorite nut!), and 1/4 c. golden flax seeds. Some folks like 1 c. of chocolate chips added, but I have not tried that. I use whole wheat flour and canola or safflower oil. So far I have never needed to add additional oil or honey to make it all stick together. Some HINTS: (1) measure the oil first and THEN the honey, so that the honey doesn't stick to the measuring cup; (2) butter your hands before pressing the mixture into the pan, (3) use a pizza wheel to cut the bars, and (4) don't the let bars get too cool, or they will be very difficult to cut! One batch lasts me about a week and a half. Since I eat two bars for breakfast, I wrap each set of two bars in saran with a layer of saran between them, and they stay fresh and nice for two weeks. They can also be frozen. Be sure to try these - they are the best I have found! We use all organic ingredients, and the flavors are wonderful!
