I made these chewy-crunchy "granola" bars when our fridge and freezer died and I had a LOT of stuff to use up in a hurry! They're packed with goodness, from whole grains to Omega rich flax and figs (that are a great source of calcium!).
- 1⁄2 cup apple butter
- 1⁄2 cup almond milk
- 1⁄2 cup pineapple juice
- 1⁄4 cup golden syrup
- 1⁄2 tablespoon molasses
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup spelt, flakes
- 1 cup kamut, flakes
- 1 1⁄4 cups oatmeal
- 3⁄4 cup oat flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 2 tablespoons ground flax seeds
- 6 dried figs, chopped
- 1⁄4 cup whole flax seed
- 1⁄4 cup ground pumpkin seeds (I used my coffee grinder)
- 3⁄4 cup raisins
