  • 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup whole-wheat pastry flour
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 2/3 cup brown-rice syrup
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup dried fruit, any combination of raisins, dried cranberries, or chopped apricots or dates
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds




    • 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.
