Kid Friendly energy bars

Not just for kids, they make a great afternoon coffee break as well. Original recipe came from I have modified it to what I had, you could also leave our the cinnamon.

1 (8-ounce) bag almonds
1/4 cup sesame seeds
1 1/2 cups oats, quick-cooking
3/4 cup dried cranberries
3/4 cup dried blueberries
2/3 cup maple syrup ( I used Rogers)
1 teaspoon cinnamon

1. Heat the oven to 275 degrees. Lightly grease a 9-inch baking pan with canola oil. Grind the almonds in a food processor until they resemble a coarse meal. 2. Combine the ground almonds and the remaining ingredients in a large bowl and stir well. Using wet fingers, press the mixture into the prepared pan and bake it for 1 hour. 3. Allow the bars to cool thoroughly while they are still in the pan, then slice them. Makes 20.
