Check out the latest recipe for Organic Power Bars from Julie M. from Stillwater. They are amazing – 1/4 of the pan was gone before they even had a chance to cool!  Thank you Julie! Happy Spring!

3 1/2 c. oats

3/4 c. raisins (opt.)

2/3 c. sunflower seeds

1/2 c. toasted sesame seeds

1/2 c. wheat germ

1/2 c. oat bran

3 T. flax seeds

1 T. cinnamon

1 tsp. salt

1 c. organic coconut (sprinkle coconut on top if desired)

1 c. organic, raw almonds

5 T. organic butter melted

1 1/2 c. organic creamy peanut butter or almond butter

1 1/8 c. honey

2 c. chocolate chips

In large bowl, combine first 11 ingredients.  Melt butter and mix with the peanut butter and honey. Combine all ingredients.  Press mixture firmly into foil-lined 9×13 inch pan.  Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 15 minutes.  Remove from oven; sprinkle chocolate chips over bars.  Return to oven until chocolate is softened (about 2 minutes).  Spread chocolate evenly over bars.  Cool slightly.  Refrigerate until firm (about 2 hours).  Cut into bars; wrap individually; store in refrigerator.
