Power Me Up! Toasted Sunflower-Honey Granola Bars

Ingredients

3 cups Organic Rolled Oats (not quick cook oats)
(If you don't feel like toasting your own you can use roasted/salted sunflower seeds. If you want to co
3/4 cup Honey (you could use 1 Cup Honey instead of Maple below)
1/4 cup Organic Maple Syrup (I prefer Grade B, it has a richer, more intense Maple flavor than grade A)
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon

Preparation

1
Pre Heat oven to 350 degrees.
2
Lightly spray sunflower seeds with cooking spray.
3
Put Sunflower seeds on a single layer in pan and sprinkle some salt on top.
4
Bake seeds in 350 degree oven for about 8 minutes or until lightly toasted and fragrant. Do watch carefully as they can burn easily!
5
Lightly grease 9x13 baking pan.
6
In a sauce pan combine Honey, Maple Syrup and Cinnamon. Heat on medium until mixture combines, thickens and boils (about 4 minutes or so) Stir mixture constantly so it does not scorch!
7
Take off heat and let mixture cool.
8
In a bowl combine Oats, Ground Flax and Toasted Sunflower Seeds
9
Pour Honey mixture over Oat mixture, combine until Oats are well coated
10
Spread in pan, press down and flatten mixture. Cool to room temperature.
11
Cut into whatever size you prefer.
12
Wrap individually in waxed paper and store in the fridge. They will stay firm if kept cold. They last for quite a while!
