  • 1 cup quick-cooking rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup Grape Nuts cereal
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 Tablespoons ground flaxseed
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

In large bowl of electric mixer, combine oats, Grape Nuts, flours, flaxseed, cinnamon, and salt; stir to combine.  Add egg, banana, honey, brown sugar, oil, and vanilla; mix well.  Stir in chopped prunes, walnuts, chocolate chips, and sesame seeds.  Mix well to combine; dough will be stiff.  Transfer to prepared baking pan and pat in mixture evenly.  Bake for 30-35 minutes until edges are browned.  Cool completely on wire rack in pan.  Use edges of foil to pick up and flip out onto a cutting board and cut into 24 squares.
