- Serves: 10 bars
- 1½ cup Rolled oats
- ½ cup Almond meal or Whole wheat flour
- ¼ cup Ground flaxseed
- ½ cup Cooked quinoa
- ½ cup Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
- ½ cup Sunflower seeds
- 1 tsp Cinnamon
- ½ cup Dried apricots, chopped
- 5 ea Dates, chopped
- 1 ea Overripe banana
- ½ cup Orange juice
- 1 tsp Vanilla extract
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients (rolled oats through cinnamon). Mix in apricots and dates.
In a blender, blend together the wet ingredients (banana through vanilla extract) until smooth.
Pour wet ingredients into dry and mix until combined.
Pour batter into an 8 x 8 in pan. (You could also bake these in a 9 x 13 pan for thinner bars–just shorten the cooking time.) Press down batter very firmly.
Bake for 30 minutes.
Serve warm or cold, with some yogurt or sour cream, if you like!
~You could change these bars up by exchanging the apricots for other kinds of dried fruits, and switching out the sunflower seeds for pumpkin, flax, or chia seeds!
