Health bars /Energy Bars with seeds, nuts and dried fruits

Do you have the same problem as I do? You feel like something to eat between meals. You maybe crave something sweet. And you end up eating something unhealthy. I have that problem. I get hungry in between meals and I end up eating something that is not good for me. Often it is something that is very processed and with lots of refined sugar. Another problem I  run into is, the unhealthy snack that I eat, does not keep me full for very long. And soon I am on the hunt again. And I eat something unhealthy and on and on we go. These health bars / energy bars with seeds, nuts and dried fruits are great. They satisfy my sweet tooth, but they also manage to keep me full for a long time. And they are natural and have a lot of ingredients that provide you with a lot of health benefits. Flaxseeds are rich in vitamins and nutrients including magnesium and Vitamin B. They also contain a lot of fiber and rich in omega 3 fatty acids. With all the rye flour in this recipe you get a lot of fiber, from eating one of these health bars. Fiber is very good for your digestive health. And has been shown to protect against colon cancer.

Recipe type: Healthy Snack
Cuisine: Clean Eating
Serves: approx. 15 slices
Ingredients
  • 1¼ Cup Spelt Flakes
  • 2 Cups Medium Rye Flour
  • 100 grams crushed flaxseeds
  • 150 grams dried apricots (chopped into pieces)
  • 75 grams of pitted dates (chopped into pieces)
  • 1 Apple (shredded)
  • 150 grams of walnuts (chopped)
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking soda

Instructions
  1. Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl.
  2. I chop the apricots, dates & walnuts into relative large pieces. That is how I like it.
  3. The rye flour I use is a medium rye. The flavor, I find is not quite so strong, but if you cannot find a medium rye it will do fine using a regular rye flour.
  4. Add the apple and yogurt to the dry ingredients.
  5. Stir until mixed well.
  6. Put baking paper in an oven proof dish (25x25 cm).
  7. Spread the dough evenly in the oven proof dish.
  8. Bake in preheated oven at 350 F for 1 hour & 10 minutes.
  9. Remove from oven and cool down before cutting into slices.
  10. Can be frozen.
