You’re launched on a lifetime of great food and great snack! Here is a filling and satisfying breakfast on-the-go, or a perfect homemade bar to stash at work. It never gets boring, as you can rotate through a variety of add-ins, like apricots, dates, cranberries or figs, pecans or walnuts, peanuts, or the occasional chocolate chips. Store-bought bars with isolated soy protein need not apply.

  • 3 C rolled oats (regular, not quick or instant)
  • ½ C whole wheat or spelt flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 T  Ener-G Egg Replacer OR 1 Tbsp cornstarch or arrowroot
  • ¼ C maple syrup or soaked dates
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½  C applesauce
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 C soymilk (or other plant milk)
  • 1/3 C raisins

Optional Additions:

  • 1/3 C dried cranberries or dried fruit
  • 1/3 C walnuts
  • ½ C chopped apple
  • 1/3 C peanut butter
  • 1/3 C Coconut

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix dry ingredients, then add the rest of ingredients and mix just  until uniform.  
Spread out in a 13 X 9 inch – glass works well as it tends not to stick.
Bake 25 – 35 minutes, until a toothpick comes up clean.
Cool. Cut into 16 rectangles.
