1 C honey
1 T safflower, grapeseed, sunflower or other mild oil
1 T flax seeds, ground
In a large bowl, combine the granola, ground flax seeds and trail mix. Set aside.
Lightly oil a piece of parchment, a silpat, or a piece of foil and place on a sheet tray.
Combine the honey and safflower oil in a heavy-bottomed stainless steel pan. Bring to a boil. When temperature reaches 320F, quickly pour over granola/Seed and Fruit mix ,and mix until everything is coated in honey. Quickly turn ingredients onto oiled parchment and with a wooden spoon or oiled rolling pin, pat down flat.
Place another piece of parchment over the top and, with a rolling pin, flatten out mixture to 1/4” to 1/8” thick without causing holes to appear. You will want these VERY thin or they are hard to eat! Remove top piece of parchment and allow bars to cool.
It is easiest to cut the sheet into bars while the mixture is still warm – it will harden as it gets cool and become difficult to cut. Score the bars and cut into pieces that are easy to handle. Store in an airtight container.
Very Crunchy Bar Option: To make a crunchier bar, omit the oil from the recipe and make as directed above.
