Breakfast Bars

These hearty breakfast bars remind me of a granola bar or an omega-3 packed power bar.  They’re filling and tasty.

After I made a batch of these and was waiting for them to cool before cutting and stylizing them for a “photo shoot,” my younger son proudly taunted me that he had picked out all of the raisins from the top of the bars.

Needless to say, I was quite miffed.  Especially since I have a couple of half gallon jars full of raisins at the boys disposal which they freely dip into when they have a “sugar” fix.

Well, I found a corner of the bars that still had the raisins mostly in tact for the photo above.

Instructions
  1. In a small bowl, combine almond flour, salt and baking soda
  2. In a large bowl, combine grapeseed oil, agave and vanilla
  3. Stir dry ingredients into wet
  4. Mix in coconut, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, almond slivers and raisins
  5. Grease an 8 x 8 inch baking dish with grapeseed oil
  6. Press the dough into the baking dish, wetting your hands with water to help pat the dough down evenly
  7. Bake at 350°F for 20 minutes
  8. Cool bars in pan for 2 hours, then serve

None of the nuts and seeds in this low-maintenance bar are toasted.  I wanted to make something quick and easy, that could be whipped up in just a couple of minutes before popping into the oven.

In other news, NPR just ran an interesting story on celiac disease that I think is worth checking out.

  1. Hi – my friend brought your bars to a holiday weekend trip, and I loved them. I have everything and am ready to bake them – how long do they keep? Should they be in the refrigerator? Can they be frozen? Please let me know – thank you so much, Jeannie

    • Jeannie, let the bars cool on the counter overnight, then wrap up and store in the fridge for up to one week :-)
