Healthy Breakfast Bars

This recipe sounds healthy, delicious, and like a good recipe for kids as well as adults.
  • 1 1/2 cups flour  (I plan to try  Spelt flour)
  • 1 1/2 cups bran cereal
  • 1/3 cup sesame seeds
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2  teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed (if you use Stevia powder in place of brown sugar,  increase the molasses to 3 T)
  • 1/3 cup oil  (I plan to try olive oil)
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 1 1/2 cups finely grated carrots
  • 1/2 cup chopped dates
Mix the dry ingredients (first 8 ingredients) together.  In another bowl, mix together the egg, buttermilk, brown sugar, oil, and molasses.   Add the liquid mixture into the dry ingredients; stir just until moistened.  Fold in the carrots and dates.  Spread evenly in greased 13 x 9 inch pan.  Bake at 350°F for 25 to 30 minutes.  Cool.  Cut into bars.
