My sister found this delicious recipe and shared it with me.  They are super healthy and hearty...perfect for a breakfast-on-the-go or mid-afternoon snack.

1 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
3/4 cup milled flax seeds
3/4 teas. salt
1 cup chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, or dried fruit
3/4 teas. cinnamon
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup honey
2 teas. vanilla
1 egg
*Peanut butter bar : 1/2 cup oil = 1/4 cup oil + 1/4 cup peanut butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease 9x13 baking pan.  In large bowl, mix oats, flour, brown sugar, flax, salt, choc. chips, and cinnamon until combined.  Stir in oil and remaining ingredients until well blended.  With wet hand, press oat mixture into pan.  Bake for 24 minutes, until pale golden on edges.  Cool completely in pan.  When cool, cut with pizza cutter and wrap.  Makes 24 small bars.
