Found on Familyfun.com. Original recipe called for 8 oz. almonds but my daughter doesn't like nuts so I reduced it and will have to leave the nuts out altogether when I make a batch for my daughter's healthy snack at school. Original recipe also calls for dried blueberries which I didn't have so I used raisins. 1/4 cup sesame seeds are also called for, which I omitted. May use sunflower seeds in the future

Recipe Ingredients for Energy Boost Bars

4 oz. almonds
2 cups oats
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1 cup raisins
1 tsp cinnamon
2/3 cup maple syrup

Recipe Directions for Energy Boost Bars

  1. Heat overn to 275 degrees. Lightly grease a 9" baking pan with canola oil/spray. Grind the almonds in a food processor until they resemble a coarse meal.

  2. Combine the ground almonds and the remaining ingredients in a large bowl and stir well. Using wet fingers, press the mixture into the prepared pan and bake it for 1 hour.

  3. Allow the bars to cool thoroughly while they are still in the pan, then slice them. Makes 16.
