    Sunflower Seeds, without salt, .25 cup, hulled (remove)
    *Sesame Seeds, 2 tbsp (remove)
    Brown Sugar, .33 cup, packed (remove)
    Honey, .5 cup (remove)
    *Dried Cherries, .5 cup (remove)
    *Dried Fruit, Papaya, 100 gram(s) (remove)
    Apricots, dried, .5 cup, halves (remove)
    Agave Nectar (Wholesome Organic Blue Agave), 6.5 tbsp
    1/2 tsp. cardamom
    1/2 tsp. cinamon

Directions

Heat the oven to 350F. Line a nine-by-nine-inch square baking pan with parchment paper or foil, letting a few inches hang over the sides of the pan. Brush with oil.
Spread the oats and seeds on another baking pan and toast in the oven until they're golden and fragrant, about six to eight minutes, shaking the pan once during toasting.
In a saucepan, combine the oil, honey, brown sugar, maple syrup, and salt. Stir over medium heat until smooth and hot.
Transfer the toasted oats and seeds, dried fruit, and cardamom and/or cinnamon to a large mixing bowl. Pour the hot sugar mixture over the oats, seeds, and dried fruit, and stir until well combined.
While the mixture is warm, transfer it to the prepared pan, pressing it into the pan easily with an offset spatula. Bake until brown, 25 to 30 minutes.
Transfer the pan to a wire rack and allow it to cool completely.
Using the overhanging foil or parchment paper, lift the fruit and oat mixture out of the pan and place on a work surface. Cut into 1-1/2-inch-by-3-inch bars.
