Note

My sister gave me this recipe that I tweaked based on what I had in my pantry. Feel free to play with your mix-ins...add chocolate chips or your favorite dried fruit. Check out this recipe and others on Whole Food Fridays: http://www.allergyfreealaska.com/2012/10/04/whole-food-fridays-week-11/

Directions

1. Pulse half of the nuts & oats in a food processor until they are of flour consistency. Don't pulse too long or you'll have nut butter!
2. Coarsely chop remaining nuts and mix in a bowl with the nut flour; add sunflower seeds, remaining gluten free oats and dried cranberries.
3. In a small saucepan mix honey, coconut oil, extracts, salt & cinnamon. Bring to a boil; once frothing, cook 15 seconds.
4. Remove honey mixture and mix into nut/oat mixture.
5. Press firmly into an 8x8 pan, lined with foil. Refrigerate until set.
6. Chop into bars, wrap in plastic and refrigerate or freeze.
