Ingredients

  • 1-2/3 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 3/4 cup sugar plus 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/3 cup oat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup chopped dried apricots
  • 1/2 cup each dried cherries and cranberries
  • 1/2 cup flaked coconut
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
  • 1/2 cup unsalted sunflower kernels
  • 1/4 cup honey or maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon water

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine oats, sugar, oat flour, salt and cinnamon; mix well. Stir in apricots, cherries, coconut, pecans and sunflower kernels; set aside.
  2. In another bowl, whisk together honey, butter, corn syrup, vanilla and water. Add the honey mixture to the fruit mixture; mix until crumbly. Pat into a lightly greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown on the edges. Cool in pan for 5 minutes.
  3. While still warm, cut into bars. Remove bars to a wire rack to cook completely. Wrap bars individually in plastic wrap or store in an airtight container with parchment paper separating layers. Yield: 12 servings.
Editor's Note: As a substitute for 1 cup oat flour, process 1-1/4 cups quick-cooking or old-fashioned oats until finely ground.
