Lactation Breakfast Bar Recipe

I have been playing around with lactation cookie recipe to see if I could successfully make a breakfast bar that wasn't too sweet, but still tasted delicious. After 5 tries, I have succeeded.

Lactation Breakfast Bars

1 cup coconut oil (liquid not solid, if it's solid or semi solid, warm to liquid state before using) or vegan butter
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
4 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons flaxseed meal
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
3 cups thick cut oats
4 tablespoons brewer's yeast
1/2 cup chips (I like a mix of dark/semi-sweet/white chips, you can use whatever combo like)
2 cups flour
3/4 cup dried fruit cut into bite size pieces (I use a mix of dried cranberries, raisins, diced pears and diced apricots)
1/2 cup chopped nuts

1. Preheat overn to 375
2. Mix flaxseed meal and water, set aside of 5 minutes
3. Beat together butter and sugars
4. add applesauce, flaxseed mixture and vanilla. Mix until well blended.
5. In a separate bowl, sift flour, brewer's yeast, and baking soda. (sifting really does make a difference)
6. Slowly fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until combined well.
7. Slowly add the oats mixing well.
8. Add chips, dried fruit, and nuts.
9. Spread into a greased 9x11 baking pan and bake for 9-13 minutes

If you would like, you can make these cookies and drop spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet and bake for 6-10 minutes.

If you aren't a nursing mommy and still want a yummy breakfast bar, just don't add the yeast.
