  • 4 cups oatmeal
  • 2 tbsp soy flour
  • 2 tbsp wheat germ
  • 2 tsp brewer's yeast
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 9 tbsp flax seeds
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/2 cup dried fruit (i used dried cranberries and berry medley from trader joe's containing cherries, blueberries , and)


  1. Grind flaxseeds in food processor, finer the better.
  2. Mix all dry ingredients together in large bowl.
  3. Add all remaining wet ingredients and mix very well. I mash between my fingers for a good consistency that doesn't crumble later.
  4. Add dried fruit and mix if you haven't already. I eyeball this, probably about 1/2 cup.
  5. Firmly press into jelly roll pan. Since the mixture is sticky, I find it best to spread it out with the spoon, cover with a sheet of plastic wrap, then roll firmly with a rolling pin. The firmer you press the bars, the less likely they are to crumble later.
  6. Bake 15-20 minutes at 375 degrees. My oven takes 17 minutes. Edges start to brown slightly, middle puffs up. Do not overbake or they will be hard.
  7. Cut into bars (or whatever shape you prefer) with pizza wheel cutter WHILE WARM.
  8. When cool, store in tupperware container in fridge until ready to eat.
