  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cups brown or coconut sugar
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon flax seed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 - 1 1/2 cup whatever you want to add c/raisins, dried fruit, seeds, chocolate chips, whatever--go nuts!
  • 1/2 cup light oil
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine all the dry ingredients, making sure that the sugar is broken up and without lumps.
  3. In a smaller bowl, combine oil, honey, egg, and vanilla extract, blending together.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry, mixing well with a spoon.
  5. Pour the mixture into a lightly greased 9x13 pan, and using a flat-bottomed glass or Tupperware container, press firmly into a flat layer in the bottom of the pan.
  6. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until the edges brown. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before cutting into bar shapes.
  7. Store in an airtight container. Bars will last for 2-3 weeks at room temperature, sealed.
