“Delicious & chewy granola-like bars with protein”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 12 cups whole wheat flour
  • 12 cup soy flour
  • 2 cups quick-cooking rolled oats
  • 1 13 cups brown sugar, packed
  • 12 teaspoon salt (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons flax seeds (optional)
  • 12 cup oil or 12 cup butter
  • 12 cup applesauce
  • 1 cup apricot preserves or 1 cup your favorite preserves
  • 14 cup nuts (optional) or 14 cup coconut (optional)


  1. Directions, Oven at 350 degrees, have a baking pan ready.
  2. Mix the dry ingredients together, add the oil and apple sauce and mix.
  3. Separate about 2 cups of the mixture. Put the mixture into a pan or two - we used 1 14"x12" pan. You can grease the sides of the pan, but it isn't necessary on the bottom.
  4. You want to pack the mixture down and have it be about 1/4 inch thick.
  5. Spread on the preserves and then crumble the remaining dry mixture on the top.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes.
  7. Let cool 10+ minutes and enjoy.
  8. Oats & whole wheat are good for fiber, the soy adds some protein, and the apple sauce is a good partial substitute for oil/butter, keeping it pretty moist.
