Homemade Energy Bar

Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

  1. 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.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine oats, flour, sesame seeds, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
