Experiment #1

1/2 cup honey (start with 1/4 cup next time)
1/2 cup steel cut oats
1/2 cup sesame seeds (raw or roasted)
1/2 cup macadamia nuts, chopped (Trader Joe’s)
1/4 cup flax seeds
1/2 cups shredded coconut (unsweetened)
1 cup chopped fruit (apricots and cherries)
1/8 cup brewer’s yeast (flakes or powder)
1 cup rolled oats (roughly powdered)

Mix dry ingredients in large mixing bowl. Add warmed honey (30 seconds in the microwave). Roughly powder the rolled oats in a spice grinder or food processor. Could probably substitute flax flour or some other flour for it; it’s meant to dry out the honey a bit.

Line 8″ x 8″ pan with wax paper and press mixture into it. Cover with wax paper and press as flat and hard as you reasonably can. Refrigerate 3 hours or so and cut into cubes or bars. If still sticky, dust with oat flour or powdered coconut.

Original recipe called for peanut butter in addition to the honey. Worth a try.
