Gluten Free Breakfast Bar

1 1/2 c. GF oats
1 c. coconut flakes
1/2 t. salt
1 1/2 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. all-spice
1/4 c. almond meal
1 T. brown sugar
3/4 c. mixed nuts (I just used raw almonds), finely chopped
1/4 c. raw pumpkin seeds, finely chopped
2 T. sesame seeds
1 c. dried fruit (I used unsweetened cranberries and raisins)

1 lg. ripe banana, mashed (could use 3 banana's in place of flax/water mix)
1/4 c. grape seed oil (could use coconut oil)
1 t. vanilla
2 T. raw honey
2 T. ground flax seed + 6 T. water (mixed together)

Preheat oven to 175.

Mix together dry ingredients and wet ingredients in separate bowls.  Combine and mix well.  Spread out over parchment paper lined cookie sheet.  Spread out mixture onto pan evenly.  Do not make it too thin or you will not be able to cut into good bars.  Bake in oven for 20 minutes or until edges are just crispy - in my oven it took almost 30 minutes  Cool and cut into bars!
