Recipe: Blueberry Bliss Breakfast Bars (Vegan, Gluten Free, Refined Sugar Free, High in Protein)

1 + 1/2 cups 100% pure, uncontaminated, rolled oats***
3/4 cup whole almonds
Heaping 1/2 cup dried blueberries
1/2 cup pistachios
1/3 cup ground flaxseed
1/3 cup walnuts
1/3 cup pepitas
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/3 cup pure maple syrup or honey
1/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce
1 cup almond butter

Serving: Makes 16 bars

Line an 8″x 8″ (or so) baking pan with parchment or wax paper such that the paper hangs over the edges (the pan I used is 7″ x 10″).
Combine the first 8 ingredients in a large bowl and mix to combine.
Add maple syrup or honey and apple sauce and mix to combine.
Add almond butter to mixture and mix until combined.
Place batter in prepared pan pressing down firmly with palm of hands (or mini-roller if you have one) and distributing as evenly as possible.
Allow pan to sit in freezer for approximately 1 hour.
Remove pan from freezer. Lift singular slab from pan by lifting up on paper. Set slab down and gently peel paper away. Slice slab diagonally into 8 long bars and then cut each long bar in half to create a total of 16 bars.  These bars keep best in a sealed container/bag in the freezer.
