    1. 1
      In a large mixing bowl combine oats, sunflower kernels, coconut, flax seed meal, oat bran, dates/fruit and nuts.
    2. 2
      In a small sauce pan, melt margarine over medium-low heat.
    3. 3
      Add corn syrup, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon and honey; stir to combine.
    4. 4
      Increase heat to medium and stir occasionally.
    5. 5
      Meanwhile spray a 13x9 baking pan with non-stick spray.
    6. 6
      Measure out a sheet of foil large enough to cover pan.
    7. 7
      Spray foil with non-stick spray and set aside.
    8. 8
      Cook corn syrup mixture until it comes to a full boil; let boil for one minute.
    9. 9
      Remove from heat and pour over oat mixture.
    10. 10
      Stir to combine (mixture will be very stiff).
    11. 11
      Transfer mixture into prepared pan.
    12. 12
      Cover with prepared foil and PRESS FIRMLY.
    13. 13
      You want the mixture to be as compact as possible.
    14. 14
      I've even used a small cutting board to help press the mixture firmly& evenly (don't be afraid to stand on it!).
    15. 15
      When mixture is as firm and even as you would like, remove foil& let mixture cool.
    16. 16
      Cut into bars.
    17. 17
      Note: Don't be afraid to add, remove and/or substitute ingredients, such as chocolate chips, wheat germ, raisins, anything goes.
    18. 18
      I'd love to get some other suggestions!

      I had alot of fun with this. I substituted pumpkin seeds for the sunflower, wheat germ(3/4 cup) and nutritional yeast(1/4 cup) for the flax seed and oat bran, and maple sugar for the corn syrup(happened to be what I had on hand). I put in dried apricots,dates,figs, and raisins for fruit, and almonds and walnuts. Yum! Oh, and I used a metal baking sheet to help press with my barefeet-it felt so nice and warm! Thanks for the recipe!

      these are really excellent. i made them just as the recipe said but i think i will reduce the brown sugar next time. i wrapped them individually in plastic wrap so we can grab one in a hurry on the way out the door.

      What a great backpack snack! I don't know the source for flax seed meal but toasted up some sesame seeds and ground them up instead. It worked great. Next time I'd like to add some dried blueberries and cherries. Thanks for the recipe.
