Grain-Free Breakfast Bars {Gluten-Free, Grain-Free, Nut-Free}

I love the idea of breakfast bars and breakfast cookies (or “biscuits,” as several manufacturers prefer to name them). The portability is a major factor of their appeal(even if I am only toting them up to my office along with a cup of coffee), but it;s also the toothsome-ness: some days I want to begin with crunching and nibbling instead of slurping, spooning (the utensil-dependent kind), or forking.

I hate the idea of any of you being left out of the joy of cookies for breakfast, hence if you are easing up or eschewing grains, I offer up my grain-free breakfast bars made with coconut flour and ground flax seeds.

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup coconut flour
  • ¼ cup flaxseed meal (ground flax seeds)
  • 2 tablespoons coconut palm sugar (or sweetener of choice)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil (or oil of choice)
  • 1-1/4 cups milk (dairy or nondairy)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup (packed) dried fruit (chopped, if needed)
  • 4 ounces raw seeds (any variety)
