Homemade Trail Mix Bars

Standard

 

 

In mixing bowl add 2 cups of quick oats.

Add 1/2 cup of craisins.

Add 1/2 cup dried cherries.

Add 1/4 cup sunflower seeds.

Add 1/4 cup chopped almonds.

Add 3 tablespoons milled golden flaxseed and 1 tablespoon wheat germ.

Add 1/2 teaspoon sea salt.

Add 1 teaspoon roasted Saigon cinnamon.

Add 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg.

Mix all dry ingredients.

In small bowl put 1/4 cup olive oil.

Add 1/4 cup honey and 1/4 cup organic agave nectar.

Mix well.

Poor wet mixture into dry mixture and combine well.

Mixture ready to be placed in lightly greased 9x9 baking dish.

Lightly spray the bottom of a measuring cup and firmly press mixture into pan. Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees.

After baking at 325 degrees for 25 minutes let homemade trail mix bars sit and cool before cutting them...I say this because I was not patient and tried to cut into it right away and we had some wonderful crumblies to munch on, but once they cooled they cut well and held together well.

Finished product...oh so good!
