    Al Al's Note:

    These bars are full of nutritious foods, including "good fats" in the flaxseed meal and nuts. I've been experimenting with granola bars after trying Kittencal's delicious Fantastic Granola Bars--trying to find something that tasted that good but was good for you too. This is as close as I have come so far. :) They are still a little crumbly but have good flavor. You can substitute any nut-butter, nuts, seeds, or dried fruit that you have on hand. Omit the salt if you are using salted nuts or seeds.

      You really don't have enough honey to make it hold together. Use some brown sugar with the honey and it should make it hold better. Plus it will give it a little more flavor.

      These are yummy! I made a few changes: natural unsweetened cashew butter instead of peanut, 1 cup flax meal, sesame seeds instead of sunflower, cranberries and orange flavored cranberries (no raisins), walnuts and pecans (no almonds) and I added a little ginger. I took JenniCat's advice and used 2 8x8s instead- they went in for 25 mins and were a bit dark around the edges, but tasted great. Thanks, I will make these often! they are thick and have an almost cake like consistency- muffin bar meets chewy granola bar!

      We really enjoyed these. They were a bit crumbly as Al Al warned. I noticed that they were the most crumbly in the center of the pan. The mixture on the edge stayed together much better. My solution is to bake them in two 8X8 square pans instead of the larger pan. I think this should help them hold together better!
