Number of Servings: 16

Ingredients

    2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
    1/2 cup dry TVP
    1/4 cup toasted sesame seeds
    1/4 cup chia seeds
    1/4 cup quinoa, rinsed
    1/4 cup kasha (toasted buckwheat)
    2 tbsp amaranth
    2 tbsp poppy seeds
    1/3 cup whole flaxseeds
    1/4 cup ground flaxseed meal
    3/4 cup ground almonds
    1/4 cup psyllium fibre husks
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/2 cup honey
    2 tbsp agave nectar
    1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
    3 tbsp peanut butter
    2 tbsp toasted sesame oil
    2 tbsp cranberry juice
    1 cup trail mix of choice, soaked in hot water and drained
    1/4 cup raisins, soaked in hot water and drained
    1 tsp vanilla

Directions

Preheat the oven to 300F, line a 9x13" pan with greased foil or parchment paper.
In a bowl, combine the oats, TVP, sesame seeds, chia seeds, quinoa, kasha, amaranth, poppy seeds, flaxseeds, flaxseed meal, ground almonds, psyllium husks and salt. Set aside.
In a large pot, heat the honey, agave, brown sugar, peanut butter, sesame oil and cranberry juice until the peanut butter is melted and the brown sugar is dissolved.
Add the grain mixture to the pot with the trail mix, raisins and vanilla, stirring well to combine.
Turn into the pan and press down firmly and evenly.
Bake 25 minutes.
Cool completely, then chill thoroughly (I like overnight) before cutting into bars.

  • Incredible!

    Very good although bars are too large for a snack so cut them in half. Also did not have amaranth so added millet. Did not have premade trail mix so just put in equal amounts of seeds and dried fruit. - 5/18/11

    how can they be gluten-free when they have oats? - 4/11/10

    oats themselves are gluten free, I buy decontaminated ones from Bob's Red Mill

  • A "healthy" snack with 43 grams of carbs, most of it from sugar (honey, agave, brown sugar, cranberry juice), not to mention the raisins and dried fruit in the trail mix? You might as well eat a Snickers bar for fewer calories. - 5/7/16
