Oatmeal Breakfast Bars

What you need: 

2 2/3 cups oats
1/3 cup flax seed meal
1/2 cup dried fruit
2/3 cup chopped nuts (I use pecans)
1/2 tablespoons cinnamon
2 medium bananas, mashed
1 liquid egg replacer (I use Ener G)
1/3 cup canola oil
1-2 tablespoons agave nectar

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a cookie sheet. Combine all the dry ingredients and mix well.
2. Add mashed bananas, prepared egg replacer, oil and sweetener and mix well until blended and mixture is sticky. Add water, as needed for a sticky consistency.
3. Shape dough into bars on prepared cookie sheet, making the bars about 1/3" thick. I would definitely recommend shaping all the bars at one time, because the longer the dough sits, the stickier it gets.
4. Bake for 15 minutes.
I make these for my husband in lieu of buying him store bought breakfast bars. They are healthier and cheaper.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

I thought these were great. Not junk food great like chocolate chip cookies, but a great healthy snack. They're filling and have good flavor. They also hold together well. I used 1/4 cup flaxseed, applesauce instead of oil and maple syrup. I baked them in an 8x8 pan, but next time I might try 11x7 so that they're a little thinner. Also, I forgot to oil the pan and they stuck a little so make sure you do that. Definitely something I'll make over and over again.

I've made this recipe twice and like it.  I make 12 bars instead of 10, which brings the calories down to 250 per bar.  After I cycle to work in the morning, this is a great snack.

these were quite good.  they definitely taste like healthy energy bars, not a dessert.  couldn't get flaxseed meal, so I used oat bran.  used a trail mix for fruit & nuts.  I liked them warm best; later they became slightly rubbery.  I did double the egg replacer, which is my standard procedure (haven't been satisfied in the past) and that or the oat bran could have changed the texture.  I'll probably make these again, but a half batch and with just one "egg" like the recipe says.

I baked them in a 9 x 9 pan for 15 minutes.

These were amazing and very healthy!  I will definately make them again.  I used sunflower seeds, dried apple rings and maple syrup.  Perfect consistancy and fruity! next time i'm gonna use applesauce in place of oil.

I have been looking for something just like this. After reading all these reviews and variations, I just can't wait to try them. Thank you so much for this recipe.

I made these this afternoon and already love them.  I love knowing I'm eating something so natural and healthy. No unhealthy additives.  I used about 1.5Tbs of evap cane juice sugar as the sweetener. And I used about 7Tbs of applesauce in place of the oil and egg.  The stuck together very well. Baked for about 20 min. Delicious.
