Cooking Instructions

1. Preheat an oven to 300°F. Lightly oil a 9x13-inch baking dish.

2. Mix the eggs, banana, oats, sunflower seeds, cinnamon, protein powder, dates, raisins, walnuts, apricots, maple syrup, and flour together in a large bowl until thoroughly combined; spread the mixture evenly into the prepared baking dish. NOTE: If not using the whey protein powder add ¼ of almond meal to retain the moisture balance.

3. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes; set aside to cool. Cut into 9 bars and wrap individually to store. These make large snacks and can easily be cut to ½ size/

4. Option to make them more of a special, though messier, treat is to melt dark chocolate and brush a little on the top of the bars.
