Ingredients
  

  • 2 flax eggs: 2 tablespoon ground flax 5 tablespoon water equals 2 flax eggs
  • cup coconut oil melted
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • ¼ cup coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 ½ cups rolled oats whole flake, not instant
  • 1 cup light spelt flour or regular all purpose flour if preferred
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup chopped dried apricots
  • ½ cup dried cranberries
  • ½ cup slivered almonds

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven and line a 8 x 8 baking pan with parchment paper. I like to line the bottom with parchment, and grease the sides with coconut oil or avocado oil.
  • Prepare the flax eggs: Add ground flax and water to a small bowl and stir. Let sit for 5 minutes to thicken.
  • In a large bowl, beat together the melted coconut oil, maple syrup, coconut sugar, flax eggs, and vanilla.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, oats, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Stir in the finely chopped dried apricots, cranberries and slivered almonds.
  • Fold dry ingredients into the coconut oil mixture.
  • Spread dough into the pan, pressing it down evenly and firmly.
  • Bake 350 oven for 20 - 30 minutes or until lightly browned; don't over cook, but the centre should be done. Let cool on a baking rack for 10 minutes and cut into bars. Enjoy!
