Home is where my husband and I reside; wherever that may be.

Some kind of yummy coming out of this kitchen today.

I have no idea what these are really called and I don't even remember where I found the recipe but my gratitude goes out to the originator!  The only tweaking that I did was to remove the cinnamon due to an allergy and substitute dried currents for the blueberries in the second batch.  Dried blue berries are too expensive to use all the time while I can get about six times the currents for the same amount of money.
I double the recipe and bake it in a rectangular cake pan.  After it is cool I cut it into squares and wrap each square in plastic wrap and freeze.  There is just enough sweetness to satisfy a craving for sugar along with a lot of fiber (for those of us oldsters who have fiber needs) and all those other good things like Omega3's.

1-1/2 cups old fashioned oats
1/2 cup chopped raw almonds
1/2 cup dried blueberries
1/4 cup flax seeds
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (I leave out the cinnamon due to allergy)
1-1/4 cups milk (I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk)
1 egg, whisked
1 teaspoon vanilla

1.        Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Stir together oats, almonds, blueberries, flax seeds, brown sugar, salt, and cinnamon in a large bowl. Add milk, egg, and vanilla then stir to combine. Pour mixture into a nonstick-sprayed 8×8 baking dish then bake for 25-30 minutes, or until toothpick inserted into the center comes our clean. Cool completely then cut into bars/triangles and store in the refrigerator for 2-3 days, or individually wrap in saran wrap and freeze. Microwave to reheat.

I want to make this! I want to make this! : D

Have you ever tried stevia for the sugar? They sell it in a large bag to sub for sugar. (I can't have sugar or honey). So I love stevia. : )

You are such a love sharing with us! Yum-yum!
