here - I specifically use this brand as it is made in the USA. I use this pan for all my breakfast bar creations as it creates bar shapes for me so all I have to do is cut and serve. This batch of 10 bars roughly costs $4, instead of $4 a bar at the store!
1 1/2 cups rolled oats (I use Good Sense)
1 1/2 cups Kashi 7 Whole-Grain Puffs
1/2 cup roasted, salted pumpkin seeds (I use Good Sense)
1/2 cup honey roasted sunflower seeds (I use Good Sense)
1/2 cup unsweeted, flaked coconut (I use Gurley's)
1/4 cup flax seed (I use Bob's Red Mill Whole)
1/3 cup maple syrup (use local)
1/3 cup honey (use local)
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 tblsp vanilla bean paste
Place all dry ingredients into a mixing bowl and stir to combine. Place maple syrup, honey and peanut butter into a 2 cup liquid measuring cup and microwave for 1.5 minutes - stir gently with a small whisk to combine, add vanilla-bean paste. Pour over dry ingredients and stir with a spatula until well combined.
Prep a USA Pans 15X6 inch, New England Hot Dog pan by spraying it with Bak-klene to ensure easy release. Empty mixture into hot dog pan evenly and cover with a large enough piece of parchment paper, press with palm of hand to solidify. I have two pans, so I place a second pan on top of the parchment and push down to make sure it is pressed evenly. Place into the refrigerator to chill for at least six hours. Cut into bars and cover with plastic wrap or a baggie as they are sticky. Makes ten bars - Enjoy!
