Oatmeal Breakfast Bars

Prepare these bars in advance for those mornings when breakfast is on the go. Or, have these omega-3 and fiber filled bars after school or on the hiking trail.
Ingredients
  Old fashioned oats 2 2⁄3 Cup (42.67 tbs)
  Flax seed meal 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
  Sea salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Dried fruit 1⁄2 Deciliter (cranberries, raisins, apricots, dates)
  Nuts 2⁄3 Cup (10.67 tbs) (pecans, walnuts, peanuts, almonds, sunflower seeds)
  Banana 2 Medium, mashed
  Canola oil 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
  Cinnamon 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Agave nectar/Maple syrup or brown rice syrup 3 Tablespoon
  Egg replacer 10 Gram
  Hot water 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Oil 1 Tablespoon (For greasing)
Directions

GETTING READY
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 7x11 or 9x9 inch glass baking dish and keep it ready.

MAKING
2. Chop the dried fruit and nuts into small pieces.
3. Combine the oats, flax, nuts and fruit and mix well.
4. Add the mashed bananas, Ener-G Egg Replacer, oil/applesauce, sweetener and hot water. Mix until blended and sticky. Let it sit for 10 minutes so that the oats absorb the liquid.
5. Press the dough into the pan.
6. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until slightly golden brown and remove from the oven.
7. Let the pan cool for 5-10 minutes and then cut the bars into squares. Remove from the pan and let them cool fully on a wire rack. The bars will be slightly chewy.

SERVING
8. Serve as you may like.
