|2||c||old-fashioned rolled oats|
|1||c||whole-wheat pastry flour|
|1⁄2||c||dried fruit, any combination of raisins, dried cranberries, or chopped apricots or dates|
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line a 9-inch square baking pan with aluminum foil and spritz foil with vegetable-oil spray. Set aside.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine oats, flour, sesame seeds, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
- In another bowl, stir together rice syrup, oil, and egg. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir to combine. Mix in dried fruits and slivered almonds.
- Spread batter into the prepared pan, evening it out as much as possible with a rubber spatula. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until lightly browned and firm to the touch in the center. Cool for 10 minutes on a wire rack before inverting onto a cutting board. Using a sharp serrated knife, cut into quarters, then cut each quarter into three bars. These keep for several days, stored in an airtight container.
