I modified this recipe from a post on Cate Writes Again (a great fitness blog). If you are feeling creative, make your own version by adding different combinations of seeds, nuts, and dried fruit.


2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats (not quick oats)

1 cup whole wheat flour (or a gluten-free flour)

1/2 cup flax seeds (ground or whole)

1/2 cup sunflower seeds

1/3 cup white chocolate chips

1/2 cup dried cranberries

1/2 cup raisins

2 tbsp brown sugar

1 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp salt

1/3 cup honey

1 egg beaten

1/4 cup canola oil

1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce

2 tsp vanilla


Preheat the oven to 350ºF (170ºC) and lightly grease a 9X13 ” baking ban (or line it with parchment paper). In a large bowl, stir together the oats, flour, seeds, chocolate, raisins, cranberries, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt. In a small bowl, combine the honey, egg, canola oil, apple sauce and vanilla.  Add the wet mixture to the dry ingredients and mix well. Press evenly into the baking pan and bake for 25 minutes (the edges will be golden brown). Allow to cool before cutting into bars.
