Lucky 13 Bars

Since next week is No Preservative Week (which I'm apparently doing BY MYSELF), here's a little recipe to help me along.

Lucky 13 Bars:
Mix 3 ½ c quick oats, 1 c whole wheat rice crisp cereal (Kashi), 1 c wheat flour, 2 Tbs. Wheat Germ, 2 Tbs. milled flaxseed, 1 tsp. baking soda. In a separate bowl mix: 2 tsp. vanilla, ¼ c soft butter, ¼ c canola oil, ¾ c honey, ¼ c almond butter. Add wet mixture to dry and blend. Add 2/3 c chopped dates, raisins, dried cherries or cranberries. Add 1 c semi sweet mini chocolate chips.

Press into a 9x11” greased pan. Cook at 350 for 15-18 mins. Remove from oven and press again. When cool cut into 16 even bars. Store in refrigerator.

YUMMY!...and look, no preservatives!...kind of

I am going to try and do this with you- and I think one of my friends is too. I need a little more help with what I can't eat though. Also, recipe sounds good, but i don't own half that stuff! ha ha ha. Did you get my text that I"m running a 5k?
