This was a good choice for this week. After almost 3 weeks of mostly rainy days I really needed some ENERGY to get back into the kitchen.


A mix of oatmeal, dried fruit (Cranberries), nuts, seeds, and coconut made up a sweet and tasty bar for snacking.

After reading the P&Q page I decided to sub in coconut oil for the butter and since I couldn’t find brown rice syrup I subbed in White Cane Syrup.

I may have baked them a LITTLE too long. When I sliced them they were more crunchy than chewy. Like biscotti. But very good.

The recipe is on page 328 of Dorie’s Baking Chez Moi and was easy to put together.
