Trail Mix Energy Bars

(4 servings)

  • 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup wheat bran
  • 1/4 cup oats
  • 1/4 cup Splenda
  • 1/4 cup flax seeds (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup skim milk
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • 1 bag (12 ounces) fruit and nut trail mix
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Place all dry ingredients in a medium mixing bowl and mix well.

Whisk egg and milk until well blended. Then, melt butter and honey together in the microwave.

Make a well in the dry ingredients; add egg/milk and honey/butter mixtures. Stir until well blended. Add entire bag of trail mix and stir until evenly coated.

Pour mixture into a lightly greased 8x8 square pan and spread evenly. Bake at 425 degrees for 15-20 minutes until golden brown and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

You can cut this into whatever size bars you would like. I cut it into fourths for meal-sized bars. Believe me: they have real staying power! Enjoy!
