The are so fun to wrap up in wax paper to add to lunches.
I like to mix all my ingredients together BEFORE I add oats, nuts, chocolate, and cranberries. Use the whisk attachment on your mixer first. Really whip it up so it's blended and you have a nice 'glue' for your bars! I change to the paddle attachment and fold in the oats, I do it slowly because I don't want my oats pulverized. Then slowly fold in your mix-in's . If you like your bars loaded with everything keep an eye on the mixture. Too dry and they wont stay as a bar. You can drizzle in more agave if needed. Press into a greased baking pan, or glass dish. Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes, until you have a golden crisp around the edges. Let cool thoroughly then slice up in the pan, or flip onto the counter. I used a pizza slicer, works like a dream to cut!
