  • 1 cup quick-cooking rolled oats

  • 2 tablespoons ground flaxseed
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • cup mashed ripe banana

  • ¼ cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 9 ounce package pitted prunes, chopped
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts
  • ¼ cup mini chocolate chips

  1. Heat oven to 325 degrees.  Line an 8-inch square pan with nonstick aluminum foil making extended edges, or can use regular foil and coat with cooking spray; set aside.
  2. In large bowl of electric mixer, combine oats, Grape Nuts, flours, flaxseed, cinnamon, and salt; stir to combine.  Add egg, banana, honey, brown sugar, oil, and vanilla; mix well.  Stir in chopped prunes, walnuts, chocolate chips, and sesame seeds.  Mix well to combine; dough will be stiff.  Transfer to prepared baking pan and pat in mixture evenly.  Bake for 30-35 minutes until edges are browned.  Cool completely on wire rack in pan.  Use edges of foil to pick up and flip out onto a cutting board and cut into 24 squares.
