TrailBlaze Oatmeal Energy Bars -- Chocolate Chip and Cranberry

The nice folks at Matisse & Jack's sent us a couple of boxes of their energy bars for us to try out. They're vegan (and packed with plenty of dietary fiber), so we decided to give them a spin...

You can either mix them with applesauce (as we did for the cranberry version) or (soy) yogurt (which we made for the chocolate chip version). The instructions couldn't be much easier -- mix the wet ingredient with the dry, pour into a 8x8 pan and bake @ 350F for 30-35 minutes. They pulled away from the edge at 30 minutes, we let them cool for awhile and cut them into squares (as seen in the picture).

After the picture, the kids inhaled two of the chocolate chip bars apiece -- I'll take that as two enthusiastic thumbs up... ;)
