I am very pleasantly surprised with how these turned out!! Very tasty, and I love how they aren't overly sweet. I made a few minor substitutions: 1/4 cup of walnuts instead of half the almonds; only 3/8 cup flax seeds plus 1/8 cup ground flaxseed; and I used 1/4 cup of dates instead of 1/2 cup of cranberries, and I might have used up to an extra 1/8 cup of peanut butter (I was finishing off the jar...) I found the mixture a bit awkward to spread into the cake pan because the stuff kept sticking to itself, but I persevered, unsure how much it would rise or fill out. It turned out not to rise or change shape much during baking, so my efforts paid off. The end result was very easy to cut, and it was only a little crumbly.

I really enjoyed these. I had 1 cup of soymilk to use up which lead me to these bars. I used extra chunky peanut butter and replaced the 1/2 cup of almonds with 1/2 cup chocolate chips. If I had not used the chocolate I don't think these would have been sweet enough for us. As it was, they were very good. Mine cooked almost 8 minutes more in an 11x8 inch pan. I love when I can use all whole wheat flour. Thanks!
