Healthy Honey Nut Granola Bar

1 14 cups crispy brown rice cereal
1 14 cups old fashioned oats
34 cup soy flour
14 cup wheat germ
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
12 teaspoon cinnamon
14 cup unsweetened dried shredded coconut
4 ounces applesauce
3 tablespoons ground flax seeds
14 cup honey
1 tablespoon molasses
13 cup Splenda granular, sugar substitute
14 cup peanuts (etc.) or 14 cup almonds (etc.) or 14 cup sunflower seeds (etc.)


Directions. Preheat oven to 325F Lightly grease one 9x13 inch pan. (Can use parchment paper instead ). In a large mixing bowl combine oats, brown rice cereal, soy flour, milled flax seed, wheat germ, cinnamon, baking soda, nuts, coconut and brown sugar. Mix well. In separate bowl mix vanilla, applesauce, flaxseed, honey and molasses. Add this mixture to the dry ingredients and stir well. Recommended: Allow wet ingredients to set for a few minutes to allow flax to gel. Allow mix after completed to set to allow product to absorb moisture before baking. Press mixture into the prepared pan. The more compact the chewier the bar. Bake at 325 F for about 20 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes, then cut into bars. Let bars cool completely in pan before removing or serving. (If too moist, place in warm oven for 15 minutes allow excess moisture to evaporate or reduce applesauce to by 1 oz. ).
