MY 'KIND' OF BARSubmitted by: GUEST_CHEF
IntroductionA makeover of a favorite nutrition bar! A makeover of a favorite nutrition bar!
2 tablespoons flaxseeds (or approximately 3 tablespoons ground)
1/2 cup maple syrup, agave, honey or a combination thereof
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup roasted whole almonds, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup chopped dried apricots
1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Grind flaxseeds and combine in a small bowl with syrup, agave or honey and salt.
3. Coarsely chop almonds and apricots and add them to a large bowl along with coconut. Pour in flax mixture and toss until evenly coated.
4. Spread batter into an 8 x 8-inch pan that has been coated with cooking spray. Bake for approximately 25 minutes, until bars are slightly browned and edges are crisp. Let pan cool only slightly before cutting into bars. If they are too warm, they will not stay together (though you can press them back together), but if they are too cool, you’ll have to chisel them out.

how do you make these stick together? i made 2 batches. i bakes the first in biscuit molds so i wouldn't need to cut them (it seemed tricky), waited till they were cold to take them out of the molds, and they crumbled like anything... then i made the second batch in a pan, and same thing happened... - 10/21/11
I haven't tried it yet, but rate it high because it has NO CORN anything in it and offers three choices of binder/sweetener so the glycemic index can be adjusted. Thanks so much for sharing and making over your mom's favorite bar. I might be able to start eating bars again! di - 10/21/11
