Introduction

Taste-y, and SO incredibly good for you! Taste-y, and SO incredibly good for you!
Number of Servings: 20

Ingredients

    2 cups oats
    1 3/4 cup puffed millet*
    1 cup unsweetened apple sauce
    1/2 cup pumpkin puree
    1/4 cup stevia**
    1 T ground flax
    1/2 T Hemp protein powder
    1/2 T nutritional yeast
    2 t cinnamon
    1/4 cup raw cashew pieces
    1/2 cup raisins

    1 T agave nectar***


Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F).

In a large bowl, combine oats, millet*, cashews, and raisins.

In a separate bowl, mix together applesauce, pumpkin, cinnamon, stevia**, ground flax, hemp powder, and nutritional yeast.

Pour applesauce mixture over dry ingredients until well mixed. Then, spread mixture into a greased rectangular baking dish.

Drizzle with the agave nectar*** and sprinkle on some additional cinnamon, if desired (I did).

Bake 15 minutes, take it out of the oven and cut into squares. Place back in oven for an additional 5 minutes.

* I used Arrowhead Mills Puffed Millet cereal. You can use puffed rice (such as Arrowhead Mills Puffed brown rice or regular Rice Krispies) or use another unsweetened cereal. Beware, the bars may come out crunchier if using a bran. (Crunchy's never a bad thing!)

**In place of stevia, you can use Splenda, Sugar, Sweet n' Low, Equal, or other sweetener of choice, you may have to alter the recipe a little, though.

***For agave nectar, you may also use a different liquid sweetener. Try maple syrup, molasses, or --if you're not vegan-- honey.
